Programme for Maskelyne and Cooke’s Mysteries, probably for their 1902-1903 provincial tour
According to Devant in his book ‘My Magic Life’ the sketch ‘The Enchanted Hive’, which is on this programme, was first introduced on 8 December 1902. If Devant was correct, this programme must therefore be dated 8 December 1902 or later. If so, the pencil date of 17 January 1900 on the programme’s cover must be incorrect. The bill includes David Devant.
