Comments:
This double picture is very similar to the "T.E. Carter, Carver and Gilder, Coventry" version [recorded as st12 on this site], except for two differences:
(a) The dates 1774 and 1874 have been added to the printed titles, and
(b) the "T.E. Carter, Carver and Gilder, Coventry" credit is missing from the lower silk.

Neither Sprake and Godden note the existence of this double silk.

The two silks which comprise the double are:

st 260 - The Good Old Days, without the winter background
st 476 - The Present Time

The capital letter at the start of each word is coloured light orange at the top half, and light blue on the lower half.
