A full page image from the December 9th, 1871 edition of “The Illustrated London News” showing Prize Winning Poultry and Dogs exhibited at the Birmingham Show. Once again, Harrison combines his talent and his employment as reporter and illustrator for the newspaper of the day. He had likely also been involved in the judging and then the rendering of this drawing as a record of the results. By the end of his days with The Illustrated London News, he was in fact its longest serving employee, and the only surviving member of staff associated with it, since its inauguration in 1842. It should also be noted that this page appears exactly one week after his involvement in the Second Crystal Palace Cat Show in London, on Dec 2nd, 1871, making it an extremely busy week. This clear and concise image is currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
