Westminster Tobacco Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Australia 2nd Series (Plain back) 1933 Australia 2nd Series (Plain back) 1933 36 - This set was prepared around 1933 but never actually issued and pictures scenes from around Australia. Unfortunately the backs are plain so aside from the title on the front there is no other information. What is nice about this set is that as well as the usual tourist spots such as the Captain Cook monument, Wilson Hall in Melbourne, Leura Falls in the Blue Mountains, Mount Buffalo, the Brisbane River, the Botanical Gardens Adelaide and Martin Place, Sydney there are unusual scenes of showing people and places of work such as pearl fishermen, carting timber in Victoria, Tasmanian hop fields, a pineapple plantation, , cotton growing, a drover’s camp, a South Australian Vineyard, harvesting wheat and the Golden Mile in Western Australia or involved in leisure pursuits such as climbing Mount Feathertop in Victoria, sailing in Sydney Harbour or enjoying the races at the Melbourne Cup. Also including is the royal visit for the state opening of Australia’s new capital Canberra. A fascinating set with card size 66 x 35mm
