Maskelyne and Cooke, Egyptian Hall, London

31st consecutive year in London (1903-04). For dating purposes, page 3 says ‘In the course of a few months, the Egyptian Hall, the oldest place of entertainment in London, will be demolished’. The date is therefore 1904. Note that Lady Kitty Greensward is in the cast of ‘The Philosopher’s Stone’. In the collection is another programme, identical but for the fact that Lady Kitty Greensward is NOT in the cast.
