Happy Birthday to you,
here's a cover for you,
of a paper from London
on the day you were born.

The front page of The Illustrated London News, a popular large format British weekly newspaper in the Victorian era. This one is dated April 11, 1885.

This wood engraving is quite finely detailed. Imposing and eyecatching when framed. The perfect birthday or special anniversary present for your friend or for yourself.

The Illustrated London News was a popular illustrated weekly newspaper and a rival of that other great publication, The Graphic. Printed in the UK in 1885.

The full print is shown in the first photo. Other photos show details from the print.

In very good condition; with printing on the reverse.
