Dr William Spark in Berlin - in the middle of 1870
from Musical Reminiscences Past and Present, page 6:
On Monday evening I visited the celebrated “ Krolls ” Gardens, in which there is an excellent theatre (chiefly used for the performance of operas), a military band, besides a large orchestra of fifty performers. Here I found the elite of Berlin. After a few morceaux by the military band, a bell rung, and all flocked to the theatre.
