Do You Know 1939
Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Do You Know 1939 Do You Know 1939 50 - No fewer than seven out of the fifty cards in Do You Know? by Carreras were concerned with Army or Navy matters. Perhaps the compiler had a military background, or was it because the series was produced in 1939 just before war broke out? We will never know the answer to that one. Having said that, this is an extremely well-produced series with excellent illustrations and factual texts covering topics as diverse as the origin of bowler hats, sandwiches, ‘bobbies’, hallmarks, beefeaters, saluting, the sailor’s collar and horse-shoes for luck – plus some teasers like how much the value of the contents of the British Museum are insured for (answer : nothing), the history behind women wearing wedding rings (originally round the neck so she could be tethered as ‘property’) and how the length of a yard was determined (by Henry I, the distance from the point of his nose to the end of his thumb). Not a lot of people know that! Size 68 x 36mm

Unstoppable Cards Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Four Feather Falls 2018 Four Feather Falls 2018 LT18 - The Anderson cards continue with these for less well-known show Four Feather Falls, aired in 1960, which was the third series to be produced by Gerry Anderson. This show capitalised on the popularity of cowboy shows at the time and told the story of a fictional Kansas town of Four Feather Falls and the adventures of its inhabitants who included Sheriff Text Tucker, voiced by actor Nicholas Parsons. The Sheriff was granted magical feathers as a reward for rescuing the grandson of Chief Kalamakooya which enable his guns to point and fire on their own when he is in danger and his horse Rocky and dog Dusty to speak. The cards picture the characters such as Grandpa Twink or Slim Jim and the numbered backs show fascinating behind the scenes photos taken during production. Size 88 x 63mm
