companion to Stumps: a sequel to Nelly's champion (story: Bamforth & Co., 21 slides, 1889)

Not in Bamforth catalogue - dated from Riley catalogue, so may be earlier. Slide listing taken from the Wrench catalogue. It's odd that this and its two related sets ('Nelly's Champion' and 'Stumps') have all disappeared from the Bamforth catalogue, but the slides are definitely by Bamforth.
