About the Poster: The Illustrated London News appeared first on Saturday 14 May 1842, as the world's first illustrated weekly news magazine. Founded by Herbert Ingram, it appeared weekly until 1971, then less frequently thereafter, and ceased publication in 2003.
This small engraving is captioned "The recent inundation at Montreal: McGill Street, From the corner of Recollet Street, on April 15" ... Vintage ephemera at it's very best!
Professionally matted in an antiqued white mat, this engraving is ready to frame. A perfect gift for a historian or any Montrealer!
