Entitled – The Strand.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

The Strand. – The old Adelphi Theatre was pulled down in the summer of 1858, and the present edifice, the first stone of which was laid by Mr. Benjamin Webster, was erected and opened on Boxing Night of the same year. This theatre was first known as the Sans Pareil, but its name was changed to Adelphi in the year 1820, by Rodwell and Jones. The front, as seen in this view, presents a three-storied building, with pillars resting between the windows on the two upper stories. To the left, on the ground floor, is seen the somewhat narow entrance to the theatre, and to the right, between columns of polished granite, the doors leading to the restaurant. This restaurant, which occupies almost the whole of the front part of the building, is owned and managed by the proprietors of the Adelphi. Messrs. A. and S. Gatti, and is magnificently furnished, being replete with everything that constitutes a first-class London restaurtant. Between the two entrances is the door leading to the pit. The gallery and stage-door are in a court connecting the Strand with Maiden Lane. For three-quarters of a century this well-known and popular theatre has been the chosen home of melodrama, and with it are connected the name and fame of Yates, Wright, Paul Bedford, Toole, Madame Celeste, Mrs. Fitzwilliam, Mrs. Keeley, and many other theatrical celebrities. The present great success of this theatre is undoubtedly due to its indefatigable managers, Messrs. Gatti; and at the announcement of a new piece the lover of melodrama knows that there is a really good treat in store for him. Mr. William Terriss and Miss Millward have been for many years respectively “hero” and “Heroine” at this famous theatre.
