Recently Received Postcard of Norwich Hippodrome

Norwich Hippodrome circa 1910

In the early part of the twentieth century the Norwich Hippodrome came about which presented regular Menagerie shows. The name Hippodrome was given to two different theatres in Norwich when the properties changed hands between the owners of the two buildings. The owners of the Hippodrome was Edward (or EH) Bostock in conjunction with the theatrical Fitt family from Norwich. Research is underway to establish as much information as possible about these theatres, thought to be a re-transformation from traveling to fixed site menageries for Bostock and Wombwell, around 1900-1912 in Norwich. It is hoped to publish it later this year.
