Cover image for By permission of the worshipful the Mayor [electronic resource] : Hereford, April 6, 1795. Now exhibiting, At Miss Newton's, Milliner, Market-Place, the powers of imagination; or, the senses deceived. By Mr. Bradberry, the Inventor, From Bond-Street, London, Where they have been exhibited to the Royal Family, and most of the Nobility in the Kingdom. These Effects may with great truth be said to establish the Doctrine of Apparitions, beyond any thing ever before offered to the Public. They have been the wonder and surprize of all Europe; and in every place where exhibited, have been universally admired. The limits of a bill are too confined to particularize those Effects---they are of that nature and extent, that the mind can receive no information of, but by seeing, when all seems Magic and Enchantment. Among many others will be introduced, a view of Black-Friars Bridge, With the Cathedral-Church of St. Paul's, and Part of the City of London; a view of Worcester; Both of which appear as large, and in every respect the same, as Reality. And a storm at sea, In which that turbulent element is so depictured from nature, as is impossible to be described. In it is represented the different Changes of Day-Break, Sun-Rise, and Mid-Day, when the Clouds are seen to gather for Rain, and succeeded by Lightning; the whole Changes taking place while viewing, and so perfectly represented, as to put the feeling mind almost in pain for the safety of the Vessels that are seen overtaken by the Storm. - The Exhibition will be open Daily from Eleven in the Morning, at One Shilling each Person. To the inhabitants of Hereford, and all who value their sight. The Sight of the Aged restored---the weak Sight strengthened---and the perfect Sight preserved to extreme old Age, by Bradberry's Patent Spectacles, Which, with Lists of some Thousands who have had them in the course of last Twelve-Months, may be seen at the Room.
