Imperial Opera House, Friday 27 September 1889
Probably belonged to James Codville (see H993.33.1) as the program came from his son’s papers. James Codville may have attended the performance of J. W. Bengough, ‘Canada’s unrivalled caricaturist and entertainer’ from Toronto and editor of “Grip” ( a humorous magazine), staged at Imperial Opera House on Sept. 27th, 1889.
The Imperial Opera House was on Pender Street at Beatty.
