Stage at the Coliseum, London


Copy of a colour-tinted postcard (on paper) of the stage at the Coliseum in London. The view is from the centre of the second circle, looking directly at the proscenium arch during a performance of 'Port Arthur' for which there is scenery on stage that suggests a battle scene. The orchestra's pit, and possibly some musicians and instruments, are visible below the stage. Some drapes and the tops of the house tabs appear underneath the arch. Four boxes can be seen, two either side of the stage, and a handful of audience members appear to be occupying the slips of the gods.
