For a star they were responsible for the nation’s telephone system and overseas connections, police communications, telegrams, the speaking clock and a host of other activities, including the G.P.O. Film Unit which made the award-winning “Night Mail” film on the train to Scotland. This fascinating set, originally produced in 1939, now available as a reprint. Size 68 x 36mm

Lambert & Butler Aviation & Space Empire Air Routes 1936 (CCS reprint 2000) Empire Air Routes 1936 (CCS reprint 2000) 50 - Described as “colour depictions of the distinctive markings of fifty countries illustrated on the plane in correct colours. Very well produced and the first of its kind, making it very desirable to the aviation enthusiast” in our card magazine in April 1937 this was not quite correct as only forty-four countries are represented as some such as the U.S.A and Britain having two or more illustrations. The importance of being able to identify an aircraft’s nationality was particularly important during times of war. For instance in WWI the R.A.F’s roundel had to be adopted in preference to the Union Jack following confusion with the German Iron Cross in poor visibility and even in today’s hi-tech world cases of mistaken identify can cost lives. It may be that the Ministry of Information had a hand in getting this set produced as swift recognition of friend or foe would be essential in the run up to World War II. Anyway, this set clearly displays the wing and rudder markings of aircraft of countries arranged alphabetically from Argentina to Yugoslavia. The texts give useful background information. For instance of the Spanish Air Force we learn that “after the fall of the monarchy in 1931 the central circle of the wing marking and the bottom band of the rudder marking were changed from purple to red., but since the outbreak of the 1936 revolution two opposing air forces have been brought into being, the markings of which undoubtedly vary.”. Card size 68 x 36mm. This is the reprint set issued in 2000 originally issued in 1936

Lambert & Butler Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Third Rhodesian Series 1930 Third Rhodesian Series 1930 25 - Lambert & Butler’s 25 Third Rhodesian Series issued in 1930, reflects attitudes representative of those times describing grown men as ‘boys’ displaying Negroid characteristics of long skull etc., and saying which tribe is “the most civilized”. The series begins with a picture of the then prime minister Howard Unwin and continues with a variety of themes such as a native family, building a hut, dug-outs on the Zambesi, pounding corn, baby elephants and so on before ending with Warkie Colliery where natives housed in compounds mined a million tons of coal annually. Card no. 7 is particularly scathing of the locals “steeped in superstition”, “hideously cruel” and of “revolting customs” which the “Authorities must take great care to prevent”. The set completes a trio by Lambert & Butler and follows The Rhodesian Series (1928) and Fauna of Rhodesia (1929). Size 68 x 36mm

Lambert & Butler Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Pirates and Highwayman 1926 Pirates and Highwayman 1926 25 - This is a very good series indeed, using excellent colour artwork to bring to life many exciting and often bloody episodes in history. Some of the names like Captain Kidd, Captain Morgan and Dick Turpin will be familiar to us all, but others may not be. Most lived violent lives and paid the price with violent deaths, as we discover on the vividly descriptive backs which mostly end with the words “hanged” or “executed”, or in the case of Mary Read, one of the two female pirates in the set, “died in prison”. We learn much of the lawless times on the high seas and highways in the 17th and 18th centuries, of great riches, hardship and slavery. Many were famous and romantic figures in their day like Frenchman Claude Duval who was as famous for his gallantry as for his daring robberies on the roads around London. He was hanged at Tyburn in 1670 “to the great grief of the women” we are told. His tombstone in Covent Garden Church bore the epitaph “Here lies Duval: Reader, if male thou art, Look to thy purse; if female to thy heart.” Exciting stuff! Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Lambert & Butler Aviation & Space History of Aviation (green front) 1932 History of Aviation (green front) 1932 25 - You don’t have to be a flying fanatic to enjoy this set issued in 1932 which covers the early years of flight in chronological order and in fascinating detail. Beginning in 1843 with a contraption built by Sir George Cayley, the “Father of British Aeronautics” which is a multiple helicopter type of which there is a model in the Science Museum in London, we are guided through the various landmark developments such as the Wright Brothers’ 1903 aeroplane, the monoplane in which Louis Bleriot flew the Channel in a historic 31-minute flight in July 1909, the Short Brothers’ “Shirl” torpedo bomber of 1917 designed for flying off the decks of ships, the Vickers-Vimy in which Alcock and Brown made their first direct trans-Atlantic flight in June 1919, right through to the Vickers Supermarine in which Flight-Lt. Stainforth established his world speed record of 407.5mph and won the Schneider Trophy for Great Britain. When one considers that the first race, just 18 years earlier, was won at a mere 46mph the truly staggering advance in aerial capability can be appreciated. This fascinating series of green-tinted pictures with detailed texts on the back is of great historical significance and important to any aviation collection and was also produced in 1933 with a brown-tint. Size 68 x 36mm.

Lambert & Butler Motoring How Motor Cars Work 1931 How Motor Cars Work 1931 25 - In 1931 mass-production had reduced car prices to within the reach of millions and demand was matched by huge new factories such as the new opened Ford plant at Dagenham. How motor cars worked was no longer the interest solely of a wealthy minority of enthusiasts it was vital information for a new generation of motorists unfamiliar with what was under the bonnet so this set much have been very helpful. It begins with generalities such as the engine structure and main working parts, then quickly turns to specifics such as the lubrication system, clutch, gear box, ignition, brakes etc. All are shown in excellent detailed colour diagrams backed with comprehensive explanations. The principals are largely the same today, although the details are somewhat different. Enjoy this set for what it is – a first class production which gives an intriguing glimpse of the motor car as it was in the 1930s. Card size 68 x 36mm
