Biographical/Historical Note

Theatre programs in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s provided audiences with a background of the play, a listing of actors and crew, scene descriptions, and photographs of some of actors. Advertisements were still extremely prevalent in the programs of these years. They range from food and drink to health products to cigarettes and alcohol to radio stations and board games to vactions (to America) to mattresses. To note, because smoking was allowed in the auditoriums, most programs (now bound into volumes) smell strongly of tobacco smoke.
