A DICKENS' PORTRAIT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 1 April 1848

A DICKENS' PORTRAIT. There lived in those days, round the cor ner, in Bishopgate-street Without, one Brogley, sworn broker and appraiser, who kept a Bhop where every description of se cond-hand furniture was exhibited in the most uncomfortable aspect, and under cir cumstances and in combinations the most completely foreign to its purpose. Dozens of chairs hooked on to washing-stands, which with difficulty poised themselves on the shoulders of side-boards, which in their turn stood upon the wrong side of dining tables, gymnastics, with their ' legs upwards on the tops of other dining-tables, were among its most reasonable arrangements. A banquet array of dish-covers, wine glasses, and decanters, were generally to be seen spread forth upon the bosom of a four post bedstead, for the entertainment of such, genial company as half-a-dozen pokers and a hall lamp. A set of window-curtains, with, no windows belonging to them, would be seen gracefully draping a barricade of chests of drawers,...
