London Theatre Land — Late 19th Century-Early 20th Century

A little trip back in time when going to the theatre or opera was a grand occasion, manners mattered and programmes were beautiful mementoes to be kept and treasured, a time when advertisements pleased the eye in ways they no longer do.

These gorgeous advertisements, which have recently sold as postcards, come from my collection of theatre programmes for late nineteenth century D’Oyly Carte productions at the Savoy Theatre in London, including The Yeoman of the Guard and The Gondoliers.

In other news, my internet connection is still appalling. I suspect it’s because I have used up the allowed bandwidth for the month (I connect via a USB stick) as a result of the endless downloading and installing necessary for this new MacBook. It makes visiting, liking and commenting on your blogs almost impossible, which is exceedingly frustrating. Please know that I am there in spirit!

Take care and keep laughing!

Sarah
