As before none of them are well known, but the reverse of the cards contain plenty of interesting facts. For instance Dorian Dennis despite having a science degree wanted to star in films, but never made it and became a burlesque artist known as ‘Double D’. Elga Andersen did have a film career, albeit in Europe, but her main claim to fame is that she sang the theme to “The Guns of Navarone”, American actress Jill Banner is better known for her relationship with Marlon Brando, Greek star Aliki Vougiouklaki is apparently the national star of Greece, Haya Harareet had a role in the original ‘Ben Hur’ and American Abbe Lane is best known for her Italian films.

Moments In History (New Zealand) Miscellaneous Trade Cards The Canterbury Earthquakes 2016 The Canterbury Earthquakes 2016 LT18 - This is an unusual set of which only 125 were issued. The cards cover the massive earthquakes which hit the Canterbury region of South Island, New Zealand in September 2010 and February 2011. 185 people sadly died as a result and there was wholesale destruction particularly in the region’s largest city Christchurch. Cards 2 and 3 are particularly poignant as they show a before and after picture of Christchurch Cathedral. The iconic structure had a 63 metre spire which was destroyed. In fact the damage proved so severe that the latter card tells us there are plans to demolish it all and replace it. Also shown is the damage to the Basillica, office buildings and the mangled remains of a bus from which only one passenger survived. As well as the damage, including that caused by flooding and rockfalls there are examples of the attempts to decorate and rebuild. There are plenty of fascinating and sad details on the numbered backs. Size 88 x 64mm.
