Hignett Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards How to Swim 1935 How to Swim 1935 50 - Back in 1935, when Hignett's produced this set of 50 cards titled How to Swim, many people did not have the opportunity to learn to swim at school or with their families so this set would have been an invaluable learning tool. The swimming methods covered are the front and back crawl, double armed backstroke and breast stroke. The fronts bear colour pictures of ladies in swimsuits and matching bathing caps executing various swimming methods and the action is broken down into sections so, for instance, there are twelve cards for the breast stroke with the first four showing the leg positions, then we move on to the arm positions and breathing before putting it all together. The last couple of cards show inter-timing of arms and legs plus isolated limb action. The ladies appear in a different bathing costume for each of the different swimming styles and the backs are full of step-by-step instructions to help you achieve the perfect technique. With these cards you can have no excuse for not getting in the water! The same set was also issued by Ogdens. Size 68 x 36mm

Hignett Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Actors Natural and Character Studies 1938 Actors Natural and Character Studies 1938 50 - Description: 1938 and Hollywood was booming. New cinemas were springing up everywhere, new colour photography was bringing greater realism to the silver screen and the public flocked to picture palaces in their droves. Film star cigarette card sets were the latest craze for collectors, and Hignetts joined the bonanza, but their set had a novel approach. Each card has two pictures, one of the star’s natural pose, the other showing him or her in character mode. Examples are W.C. Field (as Mr. Micawber), Boris Karloff (“The Mummy”), George Robey, Gracie Fields, Laurence Olivier, Ralph Richardson, Mr Douglas Bying (cast as Queen Elizabeth!) and Florence Desmond on no. 9 playing Elizabeth Bergner who is pictured on no. 2. An absolutely brilliant set. This set was also issued by Ogdens. Size 68 x 36mm
