Sir Robert Lush


A carte-de-visite portrait of Sir Robert Lush (1807-1881), one of the three judges who presided over the Tichborne trial. Because of its expected length, the case was scheduled as a ‘trial at bar’, a device that allowed a panel rather than a single judge to hear it. The president of the panel was Sir Alexander Cockburn, the Lord Chief Justice. His co-judges were Sir John Mellor and Sir Robert Lush, both experienced Queen's Bench justices.

Photographed in or about 1873 by the London Stereoscopic and Photographic Company.
