Devlin Miscellaneous Trade Cards Do You Know 1964 Do You Know 1964 50 - This interesting and colourful set covers the sort of questions that these days we can easily find the answer to online, but in the 1960s, when this was issued, would require a trip to the library such as how a Brazil nut grows, how a grasshopper sings, how a nettle stings, how fast an ostrich can travel or why a billiard cue is bevelled. Comprehensive explanations are given on the card backs. Our favourite has to be ‘Why a horse-shoe is used for luck’ as this has a local connection. Apparently these are considered lucky because legend says that St Dunstan, who was born just down the road, was noted for his skill in shoeing horses and he shoed the devil’s hoof, but this caused the devil so much pain he vowed never to enter a place where a horse-shoe was displayed – so now you know! Twenty five of these cards were also produced by B.T. Ltd, Ching & Co., Cromwell Stores, Ovaltine, S. Prior and Sweetule Products – see website for availability. This set is size 68 x 36mm.
