Eagle Tavern Pleasure Grounds
"Up and down the City Road
In and out the Eagle
That's the way the money goes;
Pop goes the Weasel."
- OLD SONG
ROYAL EAGLE CORONATION PLEASURE
GROUNDS AND GRECIAN SALOON
PROPRIETOR, Mr. T. ROUSE.- Unrivalled Galas,
with brilliant fireworks, and splendid
illuminations, and a series of superior
amusements, every Monday and Wednesday.
To attempt a description of the numerous
and varied sources of entertainment at
this unrivalled establishment would be
vain. Concert in the open air, dancing
and vaudeville in the Saloon, set paintings, cosmoramas, fountains, grottos, elegant
buildings, arcade, colonnade, grounds,
statuary, singing, music, &c.; render it a
fairy scene, of which a due estimate can
only be formed by inspection. Open every
evening. On Thursday a Benefit, for the
Laudable Pension Society, Bethnal Green.
The whole under the direction of Mr. Raymond. Brilliant Discharge of Fireworks, By the inimitable British Artist Thomas Brock.
A Band will be stationed in the Temples, To play during the Evening.
The Doors will open at Five o'clock.
