Other comments:
This Souvenir Booklet comprises a fold over cover with printed words on the front, and bound inside is the two woven silks. The BROUGH, NICHOLSON & HALL name is printed on the front cover.

From the date " 1815 ", it is assumed the battle scene is that of The Battle of Waterloo.
What the procession celebrates is now not know, although as King George V became King of England in 1910, 1935 would be his Silver Jubilee year, and celebrations of this scale would probably have occurred. We assume the town through which the procession took place was Leek (the home town of Brough, Nicholson & Hall), Staffordshire, although, again we do not know.

In like fashion, I do not know the significance of the " Nov. 1935 " date which is printed on the front cover.
