Lyons Miscellaneous Trade Cards Australia 1959 Australia 1959 48 - The cards in this set were originally given away free with Lyons Tea and it must have been delightful on a cold, wet, winter morning to open a new packet and discover and exotic creature or sunny landscape from a place most people could only dream of going to. The colour pictures include the capital Canberra and national flag as well as city buildings, but then it branches out (excuse the pun!) into the amazing flora and fauna of the region. Some of the world’s most recognised wildlife makes its home in Australia such as the Platypus, Kookaburra, Emu, Kangaroo, Wombat and Koala and they can all be found in this set. The set then shows how Australians live with a look at farming, mining and pearl fishing as well as aspects of Aboriginal life including their art and hunting skills, but the last card shows the country is looking firmly into the future as it pictures the Woomera Rocket Range, which is in the desert 250 miles north-west of Adelaide. There is plenty of information on the numbered backs including many facts which are likely to make you go “well I never knew that!”, for instance did you know that Poinsettias, popular here at Christmas, are practically the city flower of Brisbane, but although they flourish in the region they actually came from Mexico? A lovely look at a fascinating country. Size 68 x 36mm.
