Champion Dogs 1st Series 1938
Sinclair Dogs and Pets Champion Dogs 1st Series 1938 Champion Dogs 1st Series 1938 54 - This lovely set contains black and white photos of Cruft’s prize-winning pooches with their name given on the front and the informative backs giving us details of their bloodline, wins, owners etc. It has to be said that some of their names are rather silly like the Dachshund called Fernwood Radio, the Scottish Terrier called Heather Realisation or the poor Poodle who has had the indignity of having his rear end shorn of hair and is then named Stillington Jeremie. He was four times time champion so perhaps we shouldn’t feel too bad for him. Joking aside this set is full of wonderful examples of different breeds including a superior looking small Aghan Hound called Shah Shuja of Guefron who appears on two cards in the set, a Golden Retriever owned by the hon. Mrs D. Carnegie called Heydown Guider, the adorably named Kerry Blue Terrier Hell-of-A-Fellow, a Bull Terrier called Brendon Bang, a vey hairy Old English Sheepdog called Bouncer of Pickhurst, the grandly named King Charles Spaniel Ashtonmore Barritone and a Springer Spaniel known as Roundwood Lass. A must for any dog lover with cards size 68 x 36mm. This set was also issued as a larger size series size 76 x 64mmwith some of the pictures slightly different.

Gallaher Military & Armed Forces The Navy 1937 Park Drive back The Navy 1937 Park Drive back 48 - When this set was reviewed in “Cigarette Card News in 1937 it was described as “a most interesting issue covering practically every phase of the Navy’s activities, both as regards personnel and material. Examples of battleships, cruisers, aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines and various small craft are given as well as numerous scenes depicting the routine of a seaman’s life” and indeed it is the behind the scenes look at the sailors’ lives which make this set so appealing. It was issued at a time when Britain was gearing up for the war that was to come and just three years later H.M.S. Warspite, pictured mooring on card no. 25 and in heavy seas on card no. 48, was in action at Narvik inflicting great damage on shore installations and sinking German ships. Then in May 1941 came the tragic demise of the battle cruiser Hood which was sunk by the Bismarck. There were only three survivors from the crew of 1,400. The Navy had its revenge when aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm (card 44) disabled the Bismarck’s rudder and the crippled ship was sunk by torpedoes from H.M.S. Dorsetshire. There is plenty of information on the card backs which have Park Drive Cigarettes at the bottom, but the set was also produced without this and just the company name. Cards size 63 x 37mm.

Sharman Railways Golden Age of Steam 1979 Golden Age of Steam 1979 L24 - The series includes many of the most famous names in British railway history such as “City Truro” (100mph in 1904), “King George V” (in 1927 Britain’s most powerful loco, shipped to America for railway centenary celebrations), “Flying Scotsman” (the best known of all Gresley Pacifics), “Sir Nigel Gresley” (one of the 35 high-speed A4 streamlined Pacifics of which “Mallard” attained the world record steam speed of 126mph in 1938), and “Evening Star” (in 1960 the last steam locomotive built by British Rail at Swindon). The descriptive backs are highly informative. This is a true classic, impeccably produced, a ‘must’ for anyone with even a passing interest in railways. This set was also issued by John Players ad Son. Size 90 x 52mm

Faulkner Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Optical Illusions 1935 (CCS reprint 2000) Optical Illusions 1935 (CCS reprint 2000) 25 - This is a fascinating series originally produced in 1935 and reprinted in 2000 pictures all sorts of illusions which indicate how easily our eyes are fooled. Take the simple picture on card no. 2 which show two different lines with inverted arrows and normal arrow tips on the ends. Looking at these pictures the line with the arrows looks shorter than the inverted arrows and yet, as the card explains, if measured you will see that they are in fact exactly the same length. A similar trick is played with a series of posts in a corridor which are the same height but appear to differ due to the perspective of the hall. The backs give information on why these illusions work. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) 50 - Road safety was a real problem in 1934 when these were originally issued and the colourful cards illustrate some of the dangers. Actually aside from issues with tramlines and using hand signals as there were no indicators most these safety instructions are still relevant today, but it is the charming vintage pictures which are the real attraction. The warnings include not overtaking on bends, not squeezing through traffic if you are a motor-cyclist, how to pass animals, how to correct a skid and not to throw anything from a moving car as well as how to cross safely. There is plenty of further information on the card backs. Cards size 68 x 36mm.
