“Wood’s minstrel hall is one of the best ventilated places of amusement in the country, so that those who do not care to be broiled in a theatre during the hot months, can comfortably and pleasantly pass an evening at Wood’s splendid little summer resort.  Another good programme is provided for the present week, introducing the company in the various acts of singing, burlesque, dancing, etc.”

“We looked in at Wood’s on the 4th, but the house was so crowded that we did not remain long.”
