Reddings Tea Miscellaneous Trade Cards Strange Customs of the World 1969 Strange Customs of the World 1969 25 - This is an unusual set issued in 1969 in packets of tea by north London firm Reddings and some pretty weird activities are featured as well as religious ceremonies and costumes. We see, for instance, ceremonial road sweeping in London, the barbaric trial by ordeal in Kenya where people accused of crime must touch red-hot metal, the Walpurgis Masquerade in Germany where people dress up as witches and battle the townsfolk, scorpion eating, Burmese women with stretch necks and the Ripon Horn blower plus Samoan tattooing, Siamese dancing, a Bayaka Initiation Ceremony etc. One odd inclusion is that of a Lapp cradle and the card tells us that babies are “wrapped up warm in the cold climate and sleep in cradles of wood and reindeer-hide”. Frankly it does not seem strange reindeer herders would use local items to make their cradle and keep their baby warm. A fascinating set with plenty of information on the reverse. Cards size 68 x 37mm.

Reddings Tea Ships & Shipping Ships of the World 1963 Ships of the World 1963 48 - This set contains colour pictures of vessels from the 1950s and ‘60s, but by far the best thing about these is the detailed text on the reverse from which you can learn not just the owners, specifications and type of cargo, but also the name of the captain. For instance the card for the “Canberra”, which was later used as a troop ship in the Falklands War, was captained by Commodore G.A. Wild, carried 2,1888 passengers in luxury and had a crew of 960. Other liners include R.M.S. “Windsor Castle”, S.S. “Rotterdam”, R.M.S. “Queen Elizabeth”, S.S. “Bremen”, R.M.S. “Rangitane”, S.S. “United States”, S.S. “Oriana” and S.S. “Southern Cross. It is not just passenger liners that are covered as there are fishing trawlers including the “Mary Craig”, cable ship C.S. “Retriever”, M.V. “Vasilios R” a tramp ship designed to navigate the St. Lawrence Seaway, tankers including Shell’s S.S. “Serenia”, a Trinity House pilot ship, a British Railways train ferry which operated between Harwich and Zeebrugge, coal ship M.V. “Corsea”, cargo vessels including a refrigerated fruit carrier owed by Fyffes and a River Thames clay transporter. There is no card number 13 in this set instead there is a card numbered 12A. In her review in our magazine in 1963 Dorothy Bagnall wondered if it could be that the compiler was superstitious, but who knows! This is a very fine set with cards size 68 x 38mm.
