There are 13 plates of the characters and scenes drawn by the highly revered, theatrical scene painter, Henry Hawes Craven Green, (otherwise known as Hawes Craven). These are all protected by chocolate brown, hard board covers in a glamorous optical light reflecting surface. Quite hi-tech for 1892.
