This card is mounted in a typical continental frame, and not the usual Grant card. However, the actual silk is that of Grant, featuring as the silk in the Grant picture, The Old London Street, which was originally constructed as part of the International Inventions Exhibition, London, 1885.
It is believed that the silk of this card was taken to Paris in 1900 by a member of the Grant family, where it was mounted and exhibited at the Paris Expo. The problem with this theory is that Britain was the first country to allow divided back postcards (which this card has) in 1902, not in 1900.
