I own some pieces of Worcester ephemera, and this might just be one of my favorites. It’s the brochure for a show called “The Story of Worcester” which was staged in honor of Worcester’ 250th anniversary:
My favorite part is definitely “You have seen pagentry before but nothing to compare with this
extravaganza of exciting recollection and reenactment of Worcester’s history. The memory of this spectacular entertainment will out-thrill, out-shine, and out-live every similar event.”
As if there were any “similar event” to a cast-of-nearly-thousands 90-minute show of Worcester history.
