Comments:
by Austin Sprake:
These pictures were made from about 1918 onwards, often in the form of calendars.
A colourful view of Balmoral with blue sky, green trees and grass, red flowers and flowering shrubs. 

by Geoffrey Godden:
A landscape view of Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The picture is larger than the normal Stevengraph, as it measures 7 1/4 inches (18.4cm) by 2 3/4 inches (7.0cm) and is mounted on a larger size card-mount measuring approximately 12 inches (30.5cm) by 7 inches (17.8cm). The name is printed on the card-mount with the twentieth-century credit to 'Thomas Stevens (Coventry) Ltd'. This and other castle views were probably issued in the 1920s and 1930s, when some of them were sold in calendar form. Despite their comparatively late date, these castle subjects are quite rare.

Other comments:
The image above has no title, although it does have the Stevens credit. The front panel of "GREETING" suggests it was a special, possibly Christmas, mount.

 

The Stevengraph silk above was also used in the 1935 calendar
