This is the reverse of the advertisement.

This leaflet is advertising a programme of events for an evening’s magical entertainment. Magic was a very popular form of entertainment in the late 19th century and performers were constantly trying to think of new ways to impress their audiences. This artist has used new ‘technologies’ to impress his audience, alongside his card tricks and illusions his act contains the presentation of ‘watches’ and a short description of their movements. The evening also included an ‘A La Mode’ supper that was very fashionable at this time.
