I came across this advertisement at the end of the book 'Our boys under fire, or, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island volunteers in South Africa' by Annie Elizabeth Mellish.

A dental version of a well-known poem.

I'm not sure if the picture of one of Alley & Co's shoes did them justice but the endorsement by LSH may have?

'BOBS' whisky, sold by Thwaites Brewery, of Blackburn. I wonder how much an unopened bottle would be worth now?

That's a great name for a drink! I imagine they would have sold well at the time.

Two from the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, the first one probably referencing the Boxer Rebellion, or Boxer Uprising, in China.
