The Victoria Theatre - Waterloo (1860)

This Theatre was used a lot during the revival by well known evangelists speaking to working men and women. This is typical of a meeting.

Mr Carter engaged the Victoria for special services on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings in brackets March 25, 26 and 28). The attendance average perhaps 800 to 1000. After the preaching about 100 remained each evening and there were many very striking instances of conversion. The house could not be cleared much before midnight. Many of those who believed had such a clear view of Jesus that they describe themselves as having seen the pierced hands and feet of their Saviour.

From, 'The Revival', Volume iv, 13th April 1861.
