Yes, this is another post full of pictures but no, it’s not because I’m lazy! (Although I am often very lazy.) I set a deadline for my current project to keep me working apace and then things intervened and the project fell by the wayside and now I’m in a race to the finish and can’t stop to write long, thoughtful posts about history. More of those in November and December, I promise.
Meanwhile, I hope these will appeal. They’re from Theatre in the Victorian Age by Michael R. Booth (1991; Cambridge: Cambridge University Press) which I read in haste before my recent trip to England because book 3 of the Moriarty series will be set in the theater world and I wanted make sure I looked at anything that might be relevant. (I took a backstage tour of the Royal Drury Lane Theatre to satisfy that requirement. Add it to the list, O ye tourists! It was fun.)
