reissue of Farmer Brown's awakening: or, so as by fire (service of song: Bamforth & Co., 18 slides, 1894)

The position of this set in the Bamforth catalogue would correspond to first production in 1894. However this longer set was presumably later than that and replaced the previous 18-slide version (unless there were always two versions of the set available), taking its place in the catalogue pages. The set could have been reissued in 1902, when a new edition of the service of song was published.
