Boston: JE Farwell, 1863? Single sheet 16mo programs, double sided. Fine condition. Fine. Item #List1616
Two programs for performances by Morris Brothers Pell and Trowbridge shows in Boston, advertising Saturday afternoon performances at their Opera House before the fire of 1864 which led to their move to St. Louis. The performances feature Thomas Dilward performing The Prima Donna and Uncle Snow, as well as Eph Horn, Billy Morris, R.M. Carroll and others. From information online our best guess to the date is in 1863 when Dilward was performing with the group. We find a handful of programs from the company’s Boston period printed by Farwell in OCLC though none of these specific examples.
