In 1969 another picture, THE SAILING OF THE MAYFLOWER, 1620, again having no apparant connection with Macclesfield, was marketed in a further attempt to break into the American market. Anticipating a successful outcome, a greater number of pictures than normal were produced, but this venture was also a failure. The increased production almost certainly led to this particular picture becoming the least expensive one (still) to obtain.
As can be seen in the two images above however, the later white card version has been mounted such that the original woven title is obscured, and the title printed instead on the card. Below is a close up of those woven words:
