A Gallery of 1935
Mitchell Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards A Gallery of 1935 A Gallery of 1935 50 - “Originality” and “superb quality of production” were some of the words used by our new issues editor in our June 1936 magazine to describe this set. The photo-based pictures feature sportsmen, royalty, politicians, films stars and other personalities whose prominence during the previous year had kept them in the public eye. Many are still famous and where else would you find Walt Disney, Joe Louis, Shirley Temple and Fred Perry rubbing shoulders with Fred and Ginger, Anthony Eden, The Aga Khan, Lawrence of Arabia and Spada the Corsican bandit? The last two had already met untimely deaths before the series was issued, Lawrence as a result of a motor-cycling accident in May 1935 and Spada at the guillotine the following month, so we are informed on the card backs. This set was also reprinted by the Card Collectors Society in 1999. This is a superb series which captures the spirits of the age. Cards size 68 x 36mm
