The English Lotteries

The English Lottery, with a history dating from 1569, was abolished in 1826. In the decades preceding thousands of publicity posters and bills were produced by the Lottery Offices. The advertising for the lottery draws demanded exceptional clever and novel ideas where every manner of invention was used to grab the attention of the public.
