Maskelyne and Cooke Egyptian Hall programme, 30th consecutive year

30th consecutive year in London, 1902-1903. The back page of the programme advertises David Devant’s book ‘The Woes of a Wizard’ which was published in 1903. This 30th consecutive year programme must therefore be dated 1903. In addition to ‘The Philosopher’s Stone’, the bill includes two spots for Herr Valadon and Animated Photographs introduced by Mr. Nevil Maskelyne accompanied by Mr. Cramer on the Mechanical Orchestra. This is the same bill as on programme Ref. no. N2117.
