    A label stuck to mounting paper is inscribed "Given to my wife Betty by me R.W. Garling (Pat) / F Garling's home at Ermington". Around this inscription is some biographical information about Garling : it states that Garling occupied the home (built by Major Edmund Lockyer) between 1851 and 1854, and that it was adjacent to Ermington House
