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.
The page measures overall 390 x 270 mm (15.25 x 10.75inches ) approx. It is printed on both sides. There is a little age yellowing. The descriptive text in my listing, details the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page. This item will be packaged in a tube as it is too large for a board backed envelope. Please note that I don't make any profit on postage and packing; it is done at cost. The only profit made is by ebay as they charge me 10% on what I charge for postage.
