People appearing in slides

ALEXANDRA, Queen   (1844-1925) – slide 2

EDWARD VII, King   (1841-1910) – slides 1-2


The date 1898 is based on the position of the set in the Ivens (York) catalogue, among others in the Illustrated hymns series advertised in that year. However the illustrated slides feature King Edward VII, so presumably come from a reissed version of the set produced in or after 1901 (and before 1910).
