PRESTON, Miss Nannie  (1873-1950) – creator of source image(s), all 6 slides


The slide titles in the 1906 North of England Temperance League catalogue closely match those in the Riley catalogue, but most other sets in their Optical lantern Bible series appear not to be by Riley. There could possibly be two different sets here.
