Alexander Mackenzie in Florence - the 1880's

from A Musician's Narrative , page 101:

How diverting to watch Dr. Dulcamara (straight from Donizetti's Elisir d'Amore) selling nostrums and drawing teeth on his caravan in the public square o'nights, the braying of the brass band covering the screeches of the victims to the delight of the crowd.
