    • Broadbent, R.J. Annals of the Liverpool Stage. Liverpool: Edward Howell, 1908.


      ”The Music Hall, a plain brick edifice, stood in Bold
      Street at the corner of Concert Street. The hall, which was
      built in 1786 by Mr. Wilson on land purchased from Mr.
      Jonas Bold for 120, was opened in June of that year. It
      witnessed the triumphs of the greatest musical celebrities
      of the day Braham, Salmon, Catalani, Pasta, and others ;
      but it ultimately declined in popularity, and became converted
      to the prosaic purposes of trade.”
