BACK TO SENSATION PRESS MAIN INDEX

All Victorian ads are from United Kingdom publications.
The pictures on this website were taken with a digital camera or scanner and resized in Photoshop.
No magazines or books were destroyed or damaged in the process.

Images are available for commercial application and have appeared in a number of books and television programmes.

Images are not to be posted on other websites without permission.

People seem to have enjoyed these pages, but my time is limited, and I would like to say that the adverts in no way qualify me to value your antiques! I can't reply to emails like that any more, or I will never get anything else done. So instead of asking me for values or information on objects, I would advise you take them to your local auction house and ask to speak to someone there.
