The article that accompanying this plate, ostensibly by “our Lympahtic Contributor who suffers from heat and is very sensitive to the chanrms of nature,” consists very largely of complaints about the heat and mentions nothing about performers or performance — apparently just a page-filler to place below the image. —  George P.
