The title is that used by Walburn on the box in which most of the slides were found, and the total number of slides is from the same source, confirmed by accession records for the RAMM Collection.

The latest possible date of production is the date when the slides were donated to the Royal Albert Memorial Museum; it is likely that they were made several years earlier.

If the total number of slides is correct, there should be eight further slides not yet identified (seven of which may account for the gaps in the sequence as shown here), but whether these would have been additional suffix numbers ('A', 'B' etc.), or would have come after Slide 93, is not yet known.
