New York. Harper's Weekly. 01-07- 1882.
Black and white illustration on sheet 16 x 11 inches showing the stage of the theatre, viewed from the front section of the first balcony (loge) during a performance of "School for Scandal." The image is striking for the scenic realism of the setting, which utilizes a "box set" as opposed to the earlier flat scenic "wings" positioned in front of a painted backdrop. There is a circular news-agent’s stamp in the upper left corner and a former owner’s surname in the upper right corner. Overall very good condition. It should be noted that this is the first page only of the newspaper. No further text is available expanding on the page-one subject matter. Item #54136
