Printer: Bradbury & Evans

This leaflet is advertising an exhibition of a model of the Battle of Waterloo. This battle was an encounter that shaped Europe’s history. Much was written about it and there were many paintings, cartoons and models of the events. Captain Sibourne created one of the most famous models of the battle, it model was very large and a great deal of work went into ensuring that it was a faithful account of the battle, with armies and landscapes. The model was exhibited it in popular venues such as Leicester Square and The Egyptian Hall and perhaps it is his model that is being advertised here.
