same silk, with typical Grant printed card frame:

TOWER BRIDGE, LONDON
Printed at bottom of card:-
cm long by cm deep
This silk is recorded on the Grant price list and catalogue as number 104.
This postcard is also known to exist with the credit to " A. READ & Co. " instead of Grant.
Interestingly, the reverse of the alternative printed card frame above has in manuscript: " Liverpool Exhibition, September 13th 1913. ". It is surprising that Grant should have a card with a London view, whilst producing only one postcard view, and four Greetings cards specifically for the exhibition. Maybe this is an indication that by 1913 postcards were losing their appeal, and the cost of designing new ones was becoming too expensive.
