Music score, pp. 6 with with etched illustrated cover. 310 x 250mm (12¼ x 9¾").
A lady trick-rider billed as ‘Miss Ella’, made her début at Vienna’s Carl-Theater on 7 February 1855. Her act was a sensation and ran for 51 performances. Johann Strauss capitalised on this novelty act and, just four days later, presented his 'Miss Ella Polka' at his benefit concert in the Sofienbad-Saal. However Carl Haslinger, Strauss’s publisher knew something Strauss didn't: 'Miss Ella' was the stage-name of Olmar Stokes, a man, so he amended the title to simply 'Ella-Polka'.
