see generic title From London to Sydney (generic set title – 2 different versions are known)


This set is clearly closely related to the other of this title (Lucerna ID 3006229), and is assumed to be the earlier of the two versions, the other one being slightly expanded and with some of the later slides rearranged.

The slide titles here are taken from the published reading.

The earliest possible date is based on references in the reading to the British warship H.M.S. Calliope, shown in slide 44, which survived a hurricane in Samoa in 1889.
