Original antique print


Toy theatre lithograph published by John Redington (1819-1876). John Redington ran a shop at 208 Hoxton Old Town, better known today as 73 Hoxton Street. His main business was printing, bookbinding and selling tobacco. He also prepared prints for plays for the toy theatre, more properly known as 'juvenile drama'. Almost all the plays were written specifically for the toy theatre with a few notable exceptions such as Oliver Twist. The stage sets would include trap doors and windows just like the 'real' theatre. Benjamin Pollock took over the business in 1873. CONDITION : A few little nicks at the edges of the sheet.
