Bands of the centre motif of this paper were found on the back of a gameboard in 'Colborne Lodge' the home John Howard in High Park Toronto. The paper was reproduced (inaccurately) without the thinner stripe to separate the large motif. This document may one day serve to reproduce the paper correctly for this historic home.
