see generic title The holy city (generic set title – 8 different versions are known)


This is assumed to be by Bamforth because it appears in the 1898 Wrench catalogue in the middle of a large group of Bamforth Life Model songs. In the Bamforth catalogue its place has been taken by the later 9-slide version of the set, which is assumed to be a later reissue.
