Black & White Budget - Backstage 1901 - Special Feature

This month's 'Special Feature' is taken from the pages of 'Black & White Budget' 1901, a weekly magazine produced in the UK during the late 1800s and early 1900s. What you will see here are a number of pages from the 1901 editions, featuring articles on behind the scenes activities of Theatres and Performers that year. The Feature was first added to the site in June 2002 but was updated in March 2015 when all the pages were combined into this page, and then again in 2017.
