Important Industries of the British Empire 1938
Typhoo Tea Miscellaneous Trade Cards Important Industries of the British Empire 1938 Important Industries of the British Empire 1938 L25 - Dating from 1938, this set shows the world is not the same place today. The cards show the products of many countries from small islands to large dominions, in colour pictures, together with the countries arms. A description occupies the right hand third. The choice of 'industries' is revealing because nearly all, except those of the UK, are non-manufacturing ' the exploitation of raw materials or the growing of crops. The Empire was then at its peak, with Great Britain as its governing and manufacturing hub. The dominant position held by Britain can be gauged by the facts quoted, such as British yards had under construction 32.6% of the world's total ship-building tonnage, and 70,000 people were employed in linen manufacture in Northern Ireland. Another aspect of being issued in 1938 can be discovered on the card backs, offers of a tennis racket for 7/6 (37p) or four golf balls for 3/2 (16p). Oh! How times have changed! Size 101 x 36mm
