Looks like Enrique has a great memory:

From 2013 Weeks Catalog:

I screenshot it.

Edit: I just went on a little time traveling trip to 2004 Weeks Roses web page. And here it is:

My Vestey's Yellow Tea never has any hint of pink as does some of the photos from hmfusr and Eric Timewell. It's just a plain light yellow and has never really showed any variance in colour all the years that I've grown it. I wouldn't say that it even approaches bordering on a Hybrid Tea. It's pure Tea for me. Large bush, rather sprawly.

When the synonyms 'Dr Russell's Yellow' and 'Mulvay Rose' are listed, is it certain that these are the same as Vestey's Yellow, because the photos here can look very different? Unless someone labels their photo as Mulvay Rose, for instance, it's hard to tell what's what.

Any updates on the possible identification of this rose?

I only grow the "Mulvay Rose" (from Western Australia) and which is plain yellow for me too. I have queried the rose with pink tinges from the Victorian members, hmfusr and Eric Timewell. Actually, in 2007 two Californian people thought "Dr. Russell's Yellow" (from South Australia) was different from "Vestey's Yellow" (Victoria). However, in the 1992 and 2011 references, they were thought to be the same. If you can find anything further on the Australian-bred rose 'Vanity' I know that would be welcome.

Rolf Sievers posted this rose on Facebook, and stated that it originated from the cross 'Veilchenblau' X R. gentiliana.

Now growing at San Jose Heritage, 'Sweetime' is similar to 'Gourmet Popcorn' in size and habit, but has more petals, a richer fragrance and glossier foliage. Adele Hetzel won a blue ribbon with this variety at the Western Reserve Rose Society Club Show this summer (1999).
