Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

After the Barrascope pictures, an elderly man in evening dress introduces 'The Gunner'. An exhibition sparring match then takes place between Gunner and the 'Woolwich Infant', 'which is a very mild fight after what had been seen on the screen'. A challenge for ?500 is open to anyone.
