This is an original antique advertising leaflet or broadside featuring the Victoria Waterproof Cloak and Shawl on one side and Cooley's Improved Cork Corset on the verso.  This is a single sheet printed on both sides measuring about 12" x 9.5". 

The side with the Victoria Waterproof Cloak and Shawl advertising is illustrated with a large striking vignette of a Rubenesque lily white goddess like figure descending from a carriage mounted to the top of a camel.   There are dark skinned natives holding spears flanking each side and another native man prostrate on his hands and elbows serving as a foot stool for the woman descending from the carriage.  Pyramids area visible in the background.  This is really a very interesting representation Queen Victoria used in 19th century advertising.  The Victoria Waterproof Cloak and Shawl is made India Cloth so thus the use of a godlike Queen Victoria figure among her colonial subjects.  This leaflet isn't dated but appears to be circa 1875 or so. 

The verso has advertising for Cooley's Improved Cork Corset manufactured by Bates, Reed & Cooley.  This corset is described "Under the Clasp is laid a strip of stitched Cork the entire length of the Clasp, so that the steel cannot touch the body at any point..."  The advertisement also states "The manufacturers of Bone and Horn Goods have done their utmost to kill this Corset.  It does not die easy!

This is an original antique which I think dates to around 1875.  Overall condition is very good.  Email any questions.  Thanks for looking.
