The format of this card matt is unusual, and whilst on first inspection, it would look like a 'home made' matt, there is infact a genuine Stevens single title rear label which would normally only be found on the rear of the London to York Royal Mail Coach {st416}. THE GOOD OLD DAYS design was registered on 14 May 1879, and STEPHENSON'S TRIUMPH as a title was very short lived, suggesting that this picture was woven at or just after the York Exhibition (which ran from 7 May to 31 October 1879)

rear single title label.
