Wednesday 4th November 1846

“This morning between 4 and 5 o’clock the Garrick Theatre, Leman Street, Goodmans Fields, was discovered to be on fire. By 9 o’clock the fireman succeeded in getting the flames totally extinguished – supposed to originate from some of the gun wadding lodging in the flats during the firing the cannon at the Battle of Waterloo acted the previous evening.”
