Some of the alternative versions of the slides in this set suggest that there may have been another later version as well as the 1899 and 1905 versions of this song set. The car which appears in slide 7 also features in a number of Bamforth postcards from around 1907-1910, and the alternative version 'c' of slide 5 also looks similar to some later postcard scenes.
