Providence Theatre Program (circa 1900)

The seller states that it contains four beer advertisements. It's B F Keith Theater.


is a vintage and original program of B. F. Keith’s New Theatre, Providence, Rhode Island. This 12 page, 110 year old program is unusual as it has four ads for early beer breweries, two which rarely appear. The beer ads are for Burke Brothers’ Bitter Beer, brewed at Worcester, Massachusetts by Bowler Brothers, The Providence Brewing Company, What Cheer Lager Beer, brewed by Henry T. Molter, and Narragansett Lager and Ale. I’ve seen a lot of these old Rhode Island theatre programs in the past, but I believe this is the first one I’ve seen with these four breweries advertised in the same program.

poor to fair at best, with tears and tattering much wear and patina
