What is inside?

Costing just a penny (1d) The Penny Illustrated Paper promised to be the friend of the people. Each issue was filled with sketches, graphically bringing the world news to the reader, as well as opinion pieces, gossip and a small section of advertising. This edition, from May 20th, 1882, deals further with the fall out from the murders of the Chief Secretary, Lord Cavendish, and the Under-Secretary, Mr. Burke, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin.
