Newsclipping from p. 400 of French journal 'Le Monde Illustré' 1867 featuring an illustration by A. Jacob (after a drawing by Feray from a sketch by Emile Barrère) of a scene showing the aftermath of the bomb explosion at Clerkenwell prison, London, 13 December 1867. Men are depicted searching and clearing away rubble from the ruins of the building; in the foreground a man on a stretcher is carried away from the ruins. A bomb was planted to assist in helping two Fenian prisoners to escape - the result was the death of many people and numerous injuries.
