Programme for the Palace Attercliffe, 13 August 1906

Programme for the Palace Attercliffe, 13 August 1906

The Davenports had good billing for this week. The order of the acts on the bill was important. The top of the bill was always in large type and was at the top of the list, as here for The Four Emilions. The next best position was at the bottom of the list, again in larger type. So The Davenports would have been pleased to tell friends that “they were bottomimg at the Palace, Attercliffe”.
