DRUIDICAL REMAINS AT STONEHENGE
This very rare silk, which may have been sold only at the famous site, is not listed on any Grant label. Its attribution was at first based on the fact that the same fancy art-type is seen on this title and on the Grant royal portraits of the 1901 period. In general style, too, and in the placing of the wording 'woven in silk' under the picture without the manufacturer's name, it matches other Grant subjects and points to the fact that other Grant scenic pictures may await discovery. This is borne out by the fact that this silk has now been identified by Mr. R. H. Grant as a subject he remembers seeing displayed in the family home with other Grant silks. A cut or reduced version appears in postcard form, an example in my collection being dated 15 July 1904.

Other comments:
The actual silk is most frequently found as a woven postcard, recorded as gc586: STONEHENGE
