A printed paper label neatly glued to the back of one of the cartes informs the reader that these are:

ROMAN ANTIQUITIES
FOUND BY
MR. J. ROBINSON AND OTHERS IN 1880

Photograph of a broken Cinerary Urn found embedded in calcined human bones and charcoal whilst digging for Roman Remains in the fourth field north of the Roman Station, Maryport, on the 26th April, 1880.
 
The pieces of the Urn - thirty-two in number- have been skilfully affixed by MR. WILLIAM BERRY GRAHAM, who has thus restored the Urn to the original form which the Potter gave it some 1,500 years ago."
 
Photographed by S. Bettoney of Crosby Street, Maryport [Cumbria].
