Scope and content

Black leather cover, gold embossing ("photographs" and "showboat days"). Black pages with photographs glued in. Album bound by black braided string. "No. A Balmoral Album / Made in Canada by Canadian Kodak Co. Limited (Genuine Leather)."

Mostly collage work, cut out from show program, newspaper clippings of reviews and photographs from the London Kiwanis Club "Showboat Days Revue" at the Grand Theatre.

The review included glee club performances, theatrical acts and minstrel shows. The minstrel performances included several white performers in blackface.

Minstrel shows are a style of variety show, most popular during the late 19th and early 20th century, in which white performers use make-up and costumes to depict racist and stereotypical caricatures of Black people. The genre originated in the United States, but Canada had its own troupes and touring companies, and the format was popular with schools, community groups, and religious organizations.
