I have a theatrical poster/broadside from the year 1825

Customer Question

I have a theatrical poster/broadside from the year 1825 announcing three plays being performed for the victims of the great fire in Providence, RI.
The names of the plays as well as the actors are listed which I have also found in books on the subject of the fire. It is in a frame and in very fine condition for its age.
