On the back of the badge is the inscription, — “Chain and Badge of 18 carat gold, purchased by Voluntary Subscription. Richmond, Anno Domini, 1872, Thomas Thompson, Mayor’’ ; and on the back of the central link, — “Executed by W. S. Robinson, goldsmith, Richmond, Yorks.” This remarkable fine example of the goldsmiths and jewellers art was designed and manufactured, at a cost of £250, by Mr. Robinson, who received a special vote of thanks from the Corporation “for the admirable taste, research and judgment, care and industry, shown in the design, workmanship, and exquisite execution of the chain and badge.”

W. DAWSON

Ivegate, Bradford


Daring Jewelry Robbery

A daring robbery took place on the morning of the 14th ult. at the shop of Mr. W. Dawson, jeweler, Ivegate, Bradford. The thief entered the shop, which is situated in a busy thoroughfare, in broad daylight, and opening the window case, extracted a number of valuable diamond rings, with which he got clear away. The robbery was perpetrated during the momentary absence of an assistant at the back of the shop, and in full view of the passengers in the street.
