Possibly the maker is Theobald & Co. England.
The History of John Gilpin.

Six hand-painted magic lantern slides in a wooden frame. The dimensions are 18 x 10 cm, the diameter of the glass slide is 8.2 cm.

The slides are numbered 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7. So no. 4 is missing and the complete series is probably larger. The manufacturer is Carpenter Westley.
Of course the story of John Gilpin is also included in Butchers famous Junior Lecturers' Series.

The slides were sold as a set of eight in a cardboard box.

Now let us sing, Long live the King,
And Gilpin, long live he;
And when he next doth ride abroad.
May I be there to see.
