Maskelyne and Cooke, Egyptian Hall, London

The bill includes Le Cocon which was presented between 2 May and 22 October 1887, according to Jenness. Jenness also says that after 1 August 1887, when the Hall reopened, the bill included Verne and Madam Schultz. Since these two acts are not in this programme, it may be that the programme date is between 2 May 1887 and the date in July 1887 when the Hall closed for a holiday.
