A page from a book. A box containing a black and white illustration takes up half of the page. Two short columns of printed text appear above and below the illustration. At the top of the page the heading reads 'MR. BOLTER AND FRIEND' and indicates the page number, 151. In the illustration a young man stands on a platform in the centre, hands on hips, knee slightly raised. A policeman stands on the floor to his right; he gestures with a right fist thumb out and holds his hat under his other arm. To the right, six ladies and gentlemen, with the implication of more behind them, lean over a wooden panelled seating area. To the left, an older man sits on a carved high back chair at a high bench. Four men work at desks below. One man is writing, one is hunched over the desk and two stand behind a slanted desk covered in papers.

A colour illustration of a large hall with flagstone floor. Three groups of men and ladies stand or sit around the edges of the room. They face a set of three archways beyond which is an ante-chamber flooded with light from large windows behind. Through the central archway is a horseshoe shaped bench. Stairs leading to the bench are set within the smaller archways to either side. A judge sits at the head of the bench beneath the Royal coat of arms with six men dressed in red and wearing wigs to either side. There is a large desk set within the bench, around which ten men in black robes and white stoles are sat. A man in plain clothes leans against the desk. The room is decorated with insignia and wooden panelling.
