Unusual advertisement for David Devant in a programme for ‘Babes in the Wood’ at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 1898

The printer’s date on the programme is 5 February 1898. The Devant advertisement is apparently hand-written along the bottom of pages 2 and 3. It reads: ‘Notice. Mr. David Devant’s “Animated Photos” can be sent anywhere; are suitable for any audience; 40 finest subjects at each performance. Mr. Devant, the famous conjurer, attends evening parties, etc. For particulars address The Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, W.’ All pages of the programme are illustrated here. See Devant and early cinema for similar items.
