From the Stevengraph Works

Found in the pouring rain a couple of Kempton's ago a pair of Pure Silk Woven Pictures made by Thomas Stevens 'Sole Inventor' at his Stevengraph Works in the town of Coventry.  His work, silk illuminations of popular scenes of the period Victoria Arcadia included 'The Good Old Days',  'The Mersey Tunnel Railway', 'Lady Godiva' and a series of hunting scenes including these 'The Meet' and 'The Death'.
