The song is "respectfully dedicated to Sir Daniel Gooch MP". Gooch (1816 - 1889) was as a railway locomotive and transatlantic cable engineer; the first Superintendent of Locomotive Engines on the Great Western Railway from 1837 to 1864 and its chairman from 1865 to 1889. (i) He was thus Chairman of the GWR when this song was published.
