Zeppelin Over Skinningrove?

Sketch of one of the Zeppelin raids over Skinningrove Ironworks, these occurred in September 1915, April 1916 and possibly May 1916; it came to the Archive as a postcard. Does anyone know the origins of this sketch?

Derick Pearson suggests that deeper examination of the image suggests that S. Grayson may have been the creator of this particular postcard, does anybody have any update on that. The Archive will research this possibility.
