This print is from an original newspaper from the date stated; not a scan and not a later re-print. A publication similar to The Illustrated London News, The Graphic was a weekly illustrated newspaper published by H. R. Baines and Company Ltd of Tallis House, Whitefriars, City of London.
Suitable for framing. The page measures overall 390 x 270 mm (15.25 x 10.75inches ) approx. and is dated in the border. It is printed on both sides. There is a little age yellowing and some handling wear to edges; and a small amount of staining to top only affecting edge and not printed area. The descriptive text in my listing, details the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page.
