Scene from "The Workmen of Paris", at the Adelphi Theatre; Paris by Moonlight, 1864

Scene from "The Workmen of Paris", at the Adelphi Theatre; Paris by Moonlight, 1864. London stage production. 'There are two novel and elaborate scenic effects, which greatly add to the attractions of the play. One of them...is a view of Paris by moonlight, taking in the Pont Neuf and the Cité, with the towers of Notre Dame in the background. The reality of this picture is heightened by the introduction of lighted lamps and similar appliances, producing a spectacle which in its kind has not been surpassed...Mr. Gates is the painter of this scene... The dramatic interest of the piece, with the powerful acting of Mr. Benjamin Webster, will probably continue to draw for many nights a crowded audience who may not care to discuss its moral teaching'.
