This programme dates specifically to a performance on 28th November 1890. Interestingly the programme notes the first use of a ‘phonograph’ for stage purposes. Love the footnote about the theatre on the programme: “The building, it is claimed, is one of the safest in London, for it opens on to three streets, and firemen are specifically stationed at each exit”
