Murray Ships & Shipping The Story of Ships 1940 The Story of Ships 1940 50 - This set was issued briefly towards the end of 1940 but withdrawn in February 1941. The outstanding colour pictures have varnished fronts and illustrate vessels chronologically from boats of Ancient Egyptian times through to the 1930s. Along the way we see Columbus’s ship the Santa Maria, Drake’s Golden Hind, Nelson’s Victory, Brunel’s Great Eastern, the battlecruiser HMS Hood and the liner Queen Mary. There is plenty of text on the back to keep you informed of the developments and history of ships. An excellent set for any collection. Cards size 67 x 40mm

Murray Aviation & Space Types of Aeroplanes 1929 Types of Aeroplanes 1929 25 - Many of the big names in British aircraft manufacture are represented – DeHavilland, Westland, Vickers, Handley Page, Fairey, Supermarine and, of course, Belfast’s own Short Bros., whose “Calcutta” flying boat, we are told, accommodated 15 passengers for whom hot meals could be prepared by the steward on the “electric cooking apparatus”. Another of Short’s aeroplanes, the “Singapore” flying boat, was piloted by Sir Alan Cobham on his 20,000 miles flight round Africa. For speed however, the Supermarine “S5” built in Southampton was a world-beater, having created a new world record of 281mph in the Schneider Cup Race held in Venice in 1927. Perhaps the most remarkable machine in this series is the “Helicopter” which looks like two bi-planes mounted on a motor car. Hardly surprisingly as the text points out, “machines of this description are not yet a great success”. Size 66 x 36mm
