A man, without the large body of the usual figure, representing an automaton. A woman announces the figure and thereafter a man attends to the details, the woman sitting at a switch board operating the keys. “A wig is nailed to the head of the figure on a false top, and through palming, glass eyes are apparently placed in the sockets. The lips are held together with pins, placed through them in view of the audience”
No applause was given
Not a pleasant act to sit through.
