Gerard Military - General Series Modern Armaments numbered issue 1936 Modern Armaments numbered issue 1936 50 - When this set was first reviewed in our magazine C.C.N back in 1936 it was described as “very much of the moment and exceedingly interesting.” The review also stated that “the cards are the same size as Rothman’s series from the same period which is no surprise as by 1936 Louis Gerard Limited had become part of the Rothmans group”. This photographic series contains warships, aeroplanes, tanks, guns etc. with an explanatory title in the bottom white border. The numbered backs give details of the issuer, title of the set and confirms that the subjects are “from actual photographs”, but sadly contains no information about the pictures. Among the subjects covered are an observation balloon, battle cruiser, anti-aircraft gun, firing a naval torpedo, a giant flying boat, a sound detector, giant submarine, heavy tank on manoeuvres, an aircraft carrier with planes on deck, night bomber, machine rifle, tanks in action, howitzers, field dress, searchlight apparatus and some grim reminders of the First World War such as troops in their trenches prepared for gas attack and erecting barbed wire. This was also produced as an un-numbered set. A fascinating series with cards size 65 x 39mm.

Gallaher Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Portraits of Famous Stars 1935 Portraits of Famous Stars 1935 48 - Fred Astaire, Katharine Hepburn, Douglas Fairbanks, Marlene Dietrich and Gertrude Lawrence, famous stars indeed whose names are as familiar today as they were in 1935 when Gallahers pictured them in their series of 48 Portraits of Famous Stars. The cinema in the mid-1930s was at the peak of its popularity, with U.K. admissions exceeding fifty million a week. And one of the biggest box office successes was the film version of John Buchan's "The Thirty-Nine Steps" The two stars, Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll, both feature in this card series, reviving memories of their gripping adventure as fugitives, a classic portrayal that has never been equalled in the several remakes. Not all the stars in the set are instantly recognisable, and we must admit that we've never heard of Lorna Storm, Tomari Desni or Grete Natzler. Excellent colour portraits are backed by informative texts.
