An ingeniously designed advertisement for Blackey's, a gentlemen's outfitter at the Golden Ball, High Street, New Brentford (Middlesex), which satirises the second Tichborne trial while extolling the virtues of its products. '[Attorney General]: Now, on your Oath, did you never visit "Blackey's" noted clothing, hat and boot establishment? [Claimant]: I ORTON to forget it. I bought a Suit of Clothes ... 50 per cent. cheaper than those I purchased at Wagga-Wagga. [Mr. Hawkins]: They made you look just like Roger I suppose? [Claimant]: They certainly were of excellent quality, and no doubt made me look myself again.'
