Comments:
by Austin Sprake:
Colourful picture of the famous landmark in black and white, green, brown and brick red. Often no title. Sometimes in calendar form.

by Geoffrey Godden:
This attractive landscape view of the London skyline showing, prominently, the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge (raised to permit the passage of shipping on the Thames) is one of the twentieth-century series of views. Some late examples do not have a printed title and none has a printed back-label. This subject was issued mainly as the decoration for calendars, but it can occur on a large-size card measuring approximately 12 inches by 7 inches.

Other comments:
The Stevengraph silk above was also used in the 1931 calendar
