The Lenton Brothers to appear at Greene’s Opera House, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Friday, 21 May 1886 ‘GREENE’S OPERA HOUSE. The simple announcement that Barlow, Wilson & Rankin’s minstrels are to be here Friday evening will be sufficient to fill the house. They always give a splendid performance, and on this occasion will introduce several new specialties, among which are the Lenton Brothers, a couple of English acrobats said to be unequaled in their line. Mr. Carl Rankin will also positively appear here. Reserved seats are now on sale a the opera house office.’
