The John Riley/Fred Hailes Scrapbook contains theatrical and musical items including engravings, photographs, newspaper cuttings, and entrance tickets. The scrapbook was compiled between the 1830s and 1917 by at least two people, circus performer John Riley (c.1819-1911), and journalist  Fred Hailes (c.1852-1917). The ‘scraps’ are pasted on 309 pages of an international trade book.
