A promotional card for the furrier business of James Wadsworth.

Stephen Gee, in his book Old Halifax, writes that

the bear came to Halifax with a performing troupe but unfortunately grew too old to perform any longer. Wadsworth purchased the bear which was put down using a humane killer at Halifax slaughterhouse. The bear was stuffed and remained in the window of the Silver street premises until 1945, when it was given to Leeds City Museum
