Franklyn Davey Boxing Boxing 1924 (reprint 2002) Boxing 1924 (reprint 2002) 25 - The Bristol firm of Franklyn Davey produced a series of 25 boxing cards in 1924 (the same as Ogden’s 1914 series) and these were reprinted in 2002. These colour cards should more accurately be called boxing lessons since they take you through the different moves necessary in the noble art. The fronts picture one or two boxers demonstrating a technique whilst the card backs give full details of how to achieve this, starting with the basic position through to stopping a left handed punch whilst preparing to land one. Size 68 x 36mm.

Franklyn Davey Horse Racing and the Turf Hunting 1925 Hunting 1925 25 - Fox hunting remains a controversial subject but has been banned in the UK since 2004, however back in the 1920s when this set was issued it was not only popular, but the graphic pictures such as “Digging out a Fox”, “the Kill”, “Taking the Brush” and “Blooding a Youngster” would not have raised an eyebrow. The brown and white photographs, which include nice shots of horses and hounds, are backed with detailed texts telling you all you could possibly want to know about a pastime that has largely vanished from rural life. The cards are size 67 x 36mm.

Franklyn Davey Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Children of All Nations 1934 Children of All Nations 1934 50 - Back in 1934 distinctive national costumes were the order of the day, and children had allegedly different characteristics. American boys and girls struck the visitor as being “boisterous, aggressive and self-assertive”, whilst “a Scottish baby is born with the reek of peat in him”. In Connemara, Ireland “Many schoolboys wear petticoats for protection against bad fairies” and in India “the birth of a baby girl is regarded as a calamity. In this unusual series, the outline of each subject has been die-cut on three sides so that the picture can be pushed out if desired. Size 68 x 36mm
