Maskelyne and Cooke, Egyptian Hall, London

21st consecutive year in London (1893-94). The bill includes Devant with sleight of hand, and ‘The Artist’s Dream’ sketch. According to Jenness, this sketch was first presented on 4 September 1893. Jenness also says that at Easter 1894 Devant was also billed as presenting electric shadows, which are not on the bill for this programme. The likely programme date is therefore between 4 September 1893 and Easter 1894.
