This is a newspaper review from around 20 February 1882. The year 1882 is written on the front and the date 20 February is mentioned on the back. The review is of Maskelyne and Cooke’s show including the sketch ‘Mrs Daffodil Downey’s Light and Dark Séance’. The latter opened on 18 February 1882, according to the George Jenness book on the Egyptian Hall.
