Sanitarium (New Zealand) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Your Journey Through Disneyland 1988 Your Journey Through Disneyland 1988 M20 - These days there are Disney theme parks around the world, but the one referred to in this set is in Anaheim, California, These colourful cards take us on a tour beginning with a Disney character parade down Main Street and the Disneyland Railroad before touring the different zones such as Adventureland, Frontierland and Tomorrowland. Each area has its own rides and attractions so, for instance, Adventureland contains a Jungle Cruise where you ride a river boat past tropical plants and lifelike animals and Fantasyland includes Captain Hooks boat, a replica pirate ship from Peter Pan. Dominating everything is Sleeping Beauty’s Castle a famous landmark which is illuminated in different colours at night and which forms a backdrop for fireworks. In the New Orleans Square section there are attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion whilst Bear Country contains Davy Crockett’s explorer canoes and the famous Mark Twain Steamboat can be found giving tours in the Frontierland section including a view of rollercoaster Big Thunder Mountain. The last area we visit is Tomorrowland which can be reached by monorail train and includes a Star Wars based tour and Mission to Mars rocket ride. The set ends with a picture and details of a Continental airlines plane. An album was also available at the time. We are sure the park is much changed these days, but these cards provide a snapshot of the park in the 1980s, backed by informative text. Cards size 72 x 56mm

Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues History of the Motor Car blue back 1968 History of the Motor Car blue back 1968 50 - This set contains superb artwork by Kenneth Rush illustrating road vehicles from the days of steam power through to the latest (1960s) high performance racing cars, with Peter Hull’s descriptive backs brim full of interesting facts. Included, of course, is the Mini or more correctly, as card no. 46 states, Morris Mini Minor, which we are told was the “first really revolutionary mass-produced British car whose remarkable features were its unique front-wheel drive design with a transverse engine enclosing the gearbox in the crankcase, tiny 10-inch wheels and all-independent variable rubber suspension.” If you prefer speed to small and practical then you will appreciate some of the other cars in this set such as the 1935 ‘Bluebird’ in which Malcom Campbell broke the 300mph speed record, a Ferrari P4 with its V12 engine, the Cooper-Climax Grand Prix winner from 1958, the sleek 1948 Jaguar XK120, a 1938 Alfa Romeo and 1936 BMW etc. This set was re-issued by Brooke Bond in 1974 with black text on the backs. An ideal set for any car enthusiast. Size 68 x 36mm.

Hill Ships & Shipping Famous Ships Front matt 1939 Famous Ships Front matt 1939 50 - When these cards appeared in 1940 we described them as “a fine series produced in colour and full of interest at the present time. Fighting ships are well represented by such vessels as the Hood and the new aircraft carrier Illustrious. Commercial craft include crack liners such as the Queen Elizabeth and the now notorious Bremen. There are historic ships such as the Mayflower and the Victory, and vessels, which took part in the 1914-18 conflict. Altogether a valuable contribution to maritime history”. Also here is the ill-fated Lusitania and the Titanic. The Hood would join them in the ocean depths when she was sunk in 1942. The Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary were to end their days in Hong Kong and California. The Cutty Sark at Greenwich and the Victory at Portsmouth are reminders of Britain’s maritime heritage, as indeed is this fine set of cards. This set was also issued with a varnished front. Size 63 x 38mm
