Lloyd Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Tricks and Puzzles 1935 Tricks and Puzzles 1935 25 - This set of tricks and puzzles is a puzzle in itself as the new issues editor reviewing these for our magazine 1938 pointed out when he commented that it was probably intended for export as he couldn’t find it was ever issued in this country. If it was intended for export however, it seems strange the card backs say “it is hoped to run several big prize picture puzzle competitions for smokers of ‘Blue Lagoon’ and ‘Bondman’ cigarettes”. The mystery doesn’t stop there as these date from 1935 but were not reviewed until 1938 and bear the “Richard Lloyd & Sons, Clerkenwell Road, London EC1” address which might imply a date prior to 1932 when Lloyds became part of Copes. The cards themselves picture black and white puzzles with instructions on the front and explanations on the reverse. These include a trick with burning matches, finding a marked shilling, the counting squares puzzle and the jar in a bottle trick. A fascinating set with cards size 68 x 36mm

Lloyd Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Cinema Stars Glossy Nd 28-54 (1934) Cinema Stars Glossy Nd 28-54 (1934) 27 - The 1930s have been called the golden age of cinema with good reason because this was the era when the talkies took to the silver screen and going to the pictures was the most popular form of mass entertainment. Naturally enough card issuers reflected this interest by producing many sets of film stars. Among them was Richard Lloyd & Sons who issued three series of glossy cards each comprising, rather strangely, twenty-seven subjects. This set is the second of these numbered 28 to 54 and issued around 1934. These are really well done with clear attractive photos backed by plenty of information about the star’s career and latest films and among those featured in this set are Marlene Dietrich, Norma Shearer (who appears on two cards with different pictures and text), Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Gary Cooper, Maurice Chevalier and Clark Gable. Nostalgia at its best for all film buffs. Cards size 68 x 36mm
