Cartoon, Squire Bancroft and General William Booth
Cartoon, Squire Bancroft, actor-manager, and General William Booth of the Salvation Army. To think the little house should come to this! I wonder if he will make as much money here as I did! Bancroft and his wife had previously been managers of the Prince of Wales's Theatre (off Tottenham Court Road), before moving on to the Haymarket Theatre in 1879, but he retired from management in 1885. The Prince of Wales's Theatre building was used as a Salvation Army hostel from 1886.
