There is an entry in the directories of Hicks (no initial) being at this address only in 1890. However, Hicks, J. & W. were at the same address between 1887 and 1893, so the abbreviated form here may only be an abbreviated manner of recording, and the date could be anytime within these limits. The edges of the cards are gilded but square edged, and the back is blank. The card on the right is numbered 22604.
