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 " Inter-City 125 " is almost identical to the picture above (the difference being the colour of the lower front: in the image above it is white; in the Leemangrph it is yellow).
It seems probable that Calmon made woven pictures for a number of different outlets.
