The E.G. Wood 1894 catalogue uses the title Common objects of the seashore.

The 1901 Peter Feathers catalogue only lists 18 slides, numbered 1-18 though in the same order as they appear in the full set, and uses the title A half-hour at the sea side. This could possibly be a different set made from the same source images.
