Other comments:
As with the more usual version of this picture, there is a three line poem printed on the card mount below the picture title of "YE LADYE GODIVA".
On the version above however, the face of Peeping Tom is missing from the window in the top right hand side, whilst it is present in the usual picture [see st628].
