Notes:

1.  [27 June 1885]
This is the date of the performance although obviously the ticket was printed earlier.

2.  Pastoral Players
The open air productions established under the patronage of Janey Sevilla Campbell (ca 1846 - d.1923), née Callander, Lady Archibald Campbell [more].

3.  Edward William Godwin
Edward William Godwin (1833-1886), architect and designer [more]. This ticket was in his estate and passed to the Victoria and Albert Museum.

4.  ADMIT
This line is written diagonally.

5.  Returned
This line was written across the printed text in another hand, possibly that of Beatrix Whistler (1857-1896), née Beatrice Philip, artist [more]. Just below this is a table of train times from Waterloo, Vauxhall and Coombe.

6.  NO. 1448
The rest of the text is printed on the right and would have been the perforated strip torn away from the ticket when entering the play.
