McPharlin notes that George Washington attended marionette shows.? There was a marionette theater, on occasion, in a backroom at Fraunces Tavern in New York City.? Street hand puppet shows were first recorded pictorially in England in the 1770s (or so); of course, hand puppets and marionettes had entertained at fairs and in the country for a long time by then.? It's likely that booths for hand puppets would have been in the American colony shortly after they had begun to appear regulary on the streets of London.
