The amusing illustration on this leaflet is advertising Albert Marsh’s clothing store in Ipswich. At the start of the 19th Century all clothing was stitched by hand and there were no large clothing stores, instead the average Victorian bought fabrics, trimmings and threads and took them to a tailor who would make the clothes. This however was an expensive luxury and the majority of the population bought their clothes from cheaper clothiers stores that stocked standard sized shirts, trousers, skirts, underwear and hosiery.
