Colour lithograph pictorial advertisement for lime cordial depicting a racist caricature of a young man sitting on top of a small palm tree on a beach. He is smiling and holds a bottle of cordial and a large red umbrella. Another small caricatured figure with feathers on their head stands in the background holding a sign for the drinks. The caption reads: 'No musty flavour. Absolutely pure and non-alcoholic, as supplied to her most gracious Majesty, both Houses of Parliament, all the principal hospitals, ocean-going steamers, &c., &c. Carefully prepared from the purest refined sugar and the pure juice of the fruit. It forms the most delicious beverage, eminently healthy as it is most purifying to the blood (and therefore excellent for the complexion). See medical opinions.'
