FRITH, William Powell  (1819-1909) – creator of source image(s), slide 32


Given the author of the reading's family connection to Piggott of Leighton Buzzard, this set could be by them - though there's no definite evidence of this.
The 1891 Band of Hope catalogue presents the slide list in two parts, 1-20 and 21-36.
