Clockwise from top left: "Her Majesty the Queen" (Victoria), "The Kings and Queens of England, from Egbert to Victoria", "His Royal Highness Prince Albert" (this exists in two label variants, with the word 'late' added after Prince Albert's death in 1861), and "H.R.H. The Prince of Wales" (who became King Edward VII upon Victoria's death in 1901). The kings and queens montage may have been a response to an acclaimed microphotograph produced by competitor Alfred Reeves, which showed pictures of English sovereigns from the Norman Conquest (1066) until Victoria. Stovin outdid Reeves by going further back in time to Egbert, who ruled 802-839.
