Wilson's series of photographic slides under this title was extensive and appears to have been added to over a number of years. The various catalogue listings (especially those of other suppliers) tend to include a different selection from the full range of slides.

The North of England Temperance League 1906 catalogue (assuming this is the correct identification) mentions a set of 30 slides, under the title Cloud and water effects. The 1898 Wrench catalogue uses the same title, but lists 38 slides.
