Here we see all the principal characters, some several times over but in different garb, in colour, prominent against a ghostly silver montage background.

A surprising inclusion is Apple Blossom (no. 5) which I’m sure most of us wouldn’t count as a ‘garden’ flower, but when all’s said and done it doesn’t really matter because they’re lovely to look at and the backs tell you how to grow them successfully .

Brindley Motoring Bentley Cars 1993 Bentley Cars 1993 30 - Well-known for their luxury cars the company was founded by Walter Owen Bentley in 1919 and became famous for wining the 1924 24 hours Le Mans race. Walter Bentley began by selling foreign cars, but always wanted to produce his own and when he got the chance he made sure they were attractive and reliable. Some of the best models are pictured in this series taking us from the early days to an Empress II of the 1990s. The cars are pictured against pale pastel backgrounds with a shiny surface and the backs give details of the model and in many cases the year these came out, but sadly no other facts. An ideal set for any Bentley enthusiast. Cards size 70 x 37mm.

Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Wings Over the Empire 1939 Wings Over the Empire 1939 M48 - It was rather unfortunate timing for Churchman’s to issue a series called Wings Over the Empire in July 1939, when Britain was on the brink of war and the only wings which the empire would see over them for several years were those belonging to German and Japanese aircraft. That having been said this is an excellent series of colour pictures including many breathtakingly beautiful views. The first twenty cover the British Isles working out from London to the west of Ireland before flying past Gibraltar and Malta to India, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Burma, followed by Southern and Central Africa, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The fascinating text include some nice little touches like New Zealand is “the pocket edition of the world” or the text for the picture of Sydney cricket ground which reads “cricket is essentially an English sport”! The set also refers to Bombay (now Mumbai) as the “Manchester of India” and says that Blackpool “possesses all the essentials of a health resort”? The inclusion of Mount Everest stretches things a little because the peak was not actually within the Empire, nor indeed was Eire (of which Dublin and Killarney are pictured). These aerial views take us on a tour of a world that was soon to change forever at a time when faraway places were still exotic and the sun never set on the Empire. These cards are size 68 x 53mm.

Gallaher Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Aesops Fables inscribed A Series of 50 (1931) Aesops Fables inscribed A Series of 50 (1931) 25 - Although there are only twenty-five cards, the set is captioned on the backs "Series of 50". We don't know the explanation, but the fact remains this is a remarkably good set with superb illustrations with the fable related on the back, followed by the moral ? such as 'A friend in need is a friend indeed', 'Don't count your chickens before they are hatched', 'One's meat is another's poison', Necessity is the mother of invention', 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder', and so on. The following are particularly apt for the politics of the recent past ? 'In good times remember that bad times may come', 'Changes are not always for the best' and 'The greedy often overreach themselves'. We will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to whom those morals apply! Amazingly, Aesop's fables date back to the 6th century BC, but their morals are timeless. Size 67 x 36mm Note The same series was also issued inscribed Series of 25

The stars include Hollywood greats such as Greta Garbo, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Spencer Tracy, Errol Flynn and Raymond Massey. Raymond Massey picked “Things to Come” as his favourite role which by coincidence was the film on which Mitchell’s card set World of Tomorrow was based. British musical favourites such as Jessie Matthews and Gracie Fields are also included as well as newcomers like Laurence Olivier, ”wicked lady” Margaret Lockwood, Olivia de Havilland, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh who was the surprise choice for the lead in that all-time classic “Gone With the Wind” and a teenage Judy Garland whose favourite part “so far” was in “The Wizard of Oz”.

Gallaher Military & Armed Forces The Navy 1937 Park Drive back The Navy 1937 Park Drive back 48 - When this set was reviewed in “Cigarette Card News in 1937 it was described as “a most interesting issue covering practically every phase of the Navy’s activities, both as regards personnel and material. Examples of battleships, cruisers, aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines and various small craft are given as well as numerous scenes depicting the routine of a seaman’s life” and indeed it is the behind the scenes look at the sailors’ lives which make this set so appealing. It was issued at a time when Britain was gearing up for the war that was to come and just three years later H.M.S. Warspite, pictured mooring on card no. 25 and in heavy seas on card no. 48, was in action at Narvik inflicting great damage on shore installations and sinking German ships. Then in May 1941 came the tragic demise of the battle cruiser Hood which was sunk by the Bismarck. There were only three survivors from the crew of 1,400. The Navy had its revenge when aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm (card 44) disabled the Bismarck’s rudder and the crippled ship was sunk by torpedoes from H.M.S. Dorsetshire. There is plenty of information on the card backs which have Park Drive Cigarettes at the bottom, but the set was also produced without this and just the company name. Cards size 63 x 37mm.

Included are the iconic Spitfire and Hurricane which we are told together represent “one of Britain’s strongest methods of defence”, a Sunderland Flying Boat, Bristol Blenheim, De Havilland Tiger Moth, Westland Lysander, Miles Monarch, a Wellington bomber, the Armstrong, Whitworth Ensign which we are told had recently been delivery to Imperial Airways for European and Empire services, a Wellesley long-rang bomber, an autogiro, Fairey Swordfish, Lockheed Electra and Gloster Gladiator.

Gallaher Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Beautiful Scotland 1939 Beautiful Scotland 1939 M48 - The cards were produced in 1939 and among the gems included are Stirling Castle, The Peaks of Glencoe, Oban, a snow-covered Ben Nevis, the quaint fishing village of Portree, Glen Moriston, a herd of Highland cattle, Farr Point in Sutherland and the world famous Staffa Island to the north of Iona. The stunning black and white views show a world without people or cars, but times were already changing as evidenced by the card for Loch Long, the back of which tells us of a new bridge being built to replace the ferry. Other companies who issued this set were Pattreiouex and Jackson. Size 77 x 52mm
