by Geoffrey Godden:
This rare Grant portrait silk is included on printed back-labels of the 1887-8 period.
It is interesting that at the top of the card matt it says " OLD LONDON SOUVENIR ", and yet below the portrait, Grant has printed their USA address. It is hence probable that this silk portrait was produced for a USA Exposition, although we have no other exposition silks recorded from the 1887-8 back-label period quoted by Godden.
