Maskelyne and Cooke programme for the Egyptian Hall, 22nd consecutive year

22nd consecutive year, 1894-1895. According to the book on the Egyptian Hall by George Jenness, the first production of the sketch ‘Modern Witchery’ was on 6 August 1894. It seems a similar programme was continued until Easter 1895, at which time the Birth of Flora was first shown. This programme is therefore probably between August 1894 and Easter 1895. This programme has the same bill in the same order as Ref. no. N2047, but with some different wording.
