The slide listing is from the Wood 1894 catalogue - the actual titles on the slides may have been slightly different.

The reading describes the images as 'from original drawings', suggesting they were created specially for the slide set.

The Pumphrey section of the 1891 Band of Hope catalogue and the Pumphrey catalogue distributed by Husbands of Bristol use the title Tom, Eva and Topsy.

The slide titles of this set match those of the story portion of the Hughes service of song entitled Tom, Eva and Topsy. These may be the same set, or alternatively may be two separate sets made from the same source images.
