It is perhaps worth noting that the National Railway Museum, York commissioned several tapestries from H. H. CALMON & CO. LTD, Keighley, Yorkshire. One of those, titled " Rocket " is almost identical to the picture above (the difference being the position of the young man running next to the carriage: in the image above he is next to the carriage; in the Leemangrph he is behind).
It seems probable that Calmon made woven pictures for a number of different outlets.
