Morning Foods Miscellaneous Trade Cards Our England 1955 Our England 1955 50 - This set covers a wide range places and things associated with England. Places include Stonehenge, Richmond Castle, Herstmonceaux Castle, a windmill at Chesterton, The Globe Theatre, Sir Isaac Newton’s birthplace, the Plymouth lighthouse of 1655, old London Bridge, the Menai Bridge, Manchester Ship Canal and Battersea Power Station. There are not perhaps the places that everyone would choose to represent England, but some of the other selections are even stranger. These include a Druid, ancient British war chariot, Roman pottery, weapons and armour through the ages, furniture both ancient and modern, a sedan chair, old dress and coins, the Gunpowder Plot, Titus Oates in the Pillory, a spinning wheel, highwaymen, the ‘Rocket’, reaping machine, duelling, bathing costume, early bath, croquet, a horse tram, early motor car, streamlined train ‘The Silver Jubilee’ etc. All in all quite an eclectic mix, nicely illustrated with interesting facts on the reverse.

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Malayan Industries 1929 Malayan Industries 1929 27 - Carreras had already produced a set in 1928 titled Malayan Scenes (see website for availability), but clearly their fascination with the Malaya was not at an end as in 1929 they issued another set, but this time looking at industries in the region. These interesting black and white photos, backed by plenty of facts, show such things as tapping a rubber tree, sterilising the fruit of oil palms, a banana plant, a coconut estate, pineapple cultivation, transporting pipes using elephants, creping machinery on a rubber estate, betel nut palms, kapok trees which were ideal as they were quick growing and provided fibre for stuffing mattresses etc. and oil for soap, drying rattans to make canes, the transportation of coconut by oxen and boat, milling sugar cane and irrigation for rice planting. In those days most of the processes were hands-on and it is fascinating to see the use of animals and natives at work. Card no. 10 pictures the unusual hats worn by Chinese women labourers in the oil palm industry and we are told that these fringed hats denote their married state. Even by 1929 many of these processes were being mechanised and nowhere is the contrast between the old and the new more obvious than on card no. 9 which shows a bucket dredge at a tin mine, a major advance in mining, but in the foreground a man is crossing a rickety walkway carrying a load on his head. A real snapshot in time and size 69 x 36mm.
