“Prize Birds at the Crystal Palace Show” is a half-page feature image that appeared in the March 3rd, 1866 edition, of “The Illustrated London News”. It reports on the prize-winning birds and their owners/breeders, likely drawn and judged by Harrison Weir, as he and his brother Jenner Weir, judged at most of the Crystal Palace cage-bird shows during this period. Once again, Weir’s knowledge and zoological accuracy in rendition, shine forth. For the historian of a specific breed, his work must rank extremely highly. This image is currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
