Cat's CastleScene from "Cat's Castle," at the Adelphi Theatre. 1844. Illustrated London News. Scanned image and text by Philip V. Allingham.

Unlike other depictions of theatrical performances in this and other Victorian periodicals, this one takes the form of a fantasy illustration suitable for a childen's book and not a representation of what the audience at the Adelphi saw. [GPL]
