Maskelyne and Cooke programme for the Egyptian Hall, 27th consecutive year

27th consecutive year, 1899-1900. According to the book on the Egyptian Hall by George Jenness, the sketch ‘Will, the Witch, and the Watchmen’ was introduced on 23 December 1899. This programme is therefore probably in the period of end December 1899 to 14 April 1900, on which date the sketch ‘My Twin Spirit’ was first produced. This programme must have come apart into two sheets and a previous owner taped them together. This was apparently done incorrectly, because the Maskelyne and Cooke programmes have the bill on pages 2 and 3, whereas for this programme the bill appears to be on pages 2 and 4!
