Entertainment in the 1800's

Entertainment was simple in the 1800's.  This is the program for the evenings Entertainment presented by the pupils of the Dresden Academy, Tuesday Evening, June 5.  No year is indicated but one of the songs that night  was a popular Victorian parlour song called "Come into the Garden Maud" by Alfred Tennyson, written in 1857.  So we know the program came after 1857 and probably sometime prior to 1900.

Found among the papers of Charles (Brud) Harrell Moran.
