These small prints, typically ca. 3 ins. by 2 ins., were produced by G. Wise and others in Tunbridge Wells, around 1806. Many were incorporated into wood turned souvenirs, boxes, Tea Caddies and other objects, or sold separately as small pictures for visitors. They are known to have been sold in the Libraries at Margate: Samuel Bettison, Hawley Square; William Bettison, High Street; Thomas Bousfield & Thomas Pallister, Cecil Square; Joseph Hall, Hawley Square; Samuel Silver; Cecil Square; George Witherden, Marine Parade.
