Zo Elliott and Stoddard King, There's a long, long trail (London: West & Co., 1914)

Notes
Not in the Bamforth catalogue - Bamforth's London address on the final slide is given as Amen Corner, where they were definitely based in 1917. The song was published in 1914, and some of the slides are similar to postcards from 1913-14; on the other hand the song postcard set of this title is from 1916.
