‘The Graphic’ of 12 October 1878 containing an advertisement for Maskelyne and Cooke
The advertisement is on page 363 for Masklyne and Cooke at the Egyptian Hall, London. It mentions ‘a programme of inexplicable illusions and mechanical wonders’ and highlights Fanfare and Labial. W. Morton is named as Manager. To put this period in context, an article in the issue considers whether electric light is likely to replace gas light on the streets of London.
