Film Stars Series GP2 1939
Ardath Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Film Stars Series GP2 1939 Film Stars Series GP2 1939 M44 - The cards show black and white pictures of glamorous ladies including big names such as Betty Grable, Ann Sheridan, Joan Blondell and Olivia De Havilland. ‘Film Stars’ is a misnomer as some, like Helena Garvin, are models, whilst others are showgirls from the Windmill Theatre. The rest are not well-known although some appeared in films such as singer Shirley Ross who was in ‘Some Like It Hot’. It says something about how obscure many are that Monica Bishop is listed as ‘able to stand-in for well-known star Victoria Hopper’? and Muriel Baron is a pantomime boy. Size 80 x 56mm.

Wills Flowers and the Garden Garden Hints 1938 (Home issue Album offer with price) Garden Hints 1938 (Home issue Album offer with price) 50 - These cards contain clear colour pictures and diagrams showing the method to follow for successful projects in the garden with plenty of tips on the numbered backs, most of which is still applicable today. We are not just talking about planting and pruning tips, although these are included, as there are instructions for laying crazy paving, making a very ornate water-lily pool or dovecot, preserving apples, even how to make your own propagating frame. These were issued in an age when you couldn’t just nip to the garden centre and even the most ambitious of designs had to be achieved yourself. This set was also issued in Ireland and the Channel Islands and would make a good present for anyone new to gardening as there are plenty of basic practical hints. Cards size 68 x 36mm

Anonymous Tobacco Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Careless Moments (Pin Up Girls) 1922 Careless Moments (Pin Up Girls) 1922 25 - This set of black and white pictures is titled “Careless Moments” on the reverse, but contains no further information. The idea of the set is that women are captured in an unguarded moment either getting dressed or taking a break from work with the result that most are in their underwear and lots of legs and stocking tops are on view. Unlike the explicit images available today these are tastefully done, but still titillating and if you are into stockings this is definitely the set for you! Cards size 70 x 38mm
