This clipping features a number of hand coloured wood engraved prints depicting views of the first theatre established at the Ballarat gold diggings in 1852. The article appeared in Frank Leslie’s Illustrated newspaper. The gold mining camps were a harsh place to live and the establishment of amusement activities provided relief for the diggers.
