Other comments:
The image above is Stevens FOR LIFE OR DEATH, but clearly has the Mannion credit as the weaver.

It is believed that Mannion was an agent of Stevens in America, and there are a number of identified Stevens silks mounted with Mannion credits:

Centennial Exposition / of the Ohio Valley and Central States / Cincinnati 1888 (st68)
The Finish (st193)
For life or death - sub titled: 'Heroism on land' (4 horses) - the image above
The Good Old Days - winter landscape
The Mersey Tunnel Railway
The Present Time / 60 Miles an Hour
The Start {st557}
The Water Jump {st601}

There are also bookmark and portrait silks with the Mannion credit.
