Descriptive data for this set (listed below slide images)
Slide 1
One gentleman takes up his seat just outside, enjoying the air and his book as they ride
Slide 2
And so the poor chap who was seated outside was seen by two horrified faces to slide
Slide 3
Then up the deep incline he scrambled you see, intending the first at the outlet to be
Slide 4
He seated himself on the tunnel and took once more a deep interest in his big book
Slide 5
For just a few moments he scared the old chap who drove them, and knew nothing of the mishap
Slide 6
And then they explained to the grinning old man the cause of the stoppage, and off they all ran
Slide 7
And guess, if you can, how they opened their eyes, with horror at first, then again with surprise
