This is assumed to be a Piggott set on the basis of 'Leighton Buzzard' on a poster on slide 14, which also includes a date of Christmas Day 1874.
The slide titles are from several catalogue listings, but may be confused with those of the York set with the same number of slides - the actual slide titles for this set may have been different.
