Do You Know 2nd Series 1924
Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Do You Know 2nd Series 1924 Do You Know 2nd Series 1924 50 - This set answers all sorts of questions such as which animals live the longest? (the giant land tortoise by the way!), why apples go brown when cut, where the world’s oldest buildings are, why a camel has a hump, why a cock is used on church weather-vanes, how flies walk upside-down etc. The colourful pictures on the front admirably illustrate the subject whilst the backs provide all the necessary explanation. Some questions make sense, such as which is the most beautiful building in the world? (the Taj Mahal in case you were wondering), but you have to wonder who would ask why the horse straightens its fore-legs first and the cow its hind-legs when rising? A fine set for any collection. Size 68 x 36mm

Wix Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Henry 5th Series 1936 Henry 5th Series 1936 L50 - Kensitas cigarettes, produced by J Wix & Sons, were one of the top brands for many years, helped no doubt by their innovative promotions. In 1935 they began issuing cards featuring the antics of a mischievous boy called Henry who was the invention of well-known American strip cartoonist Carl Anderson. Each colour picture was a complete episode in Henry’s life as he gets himself embroiled in some hilarious situations. Over an eightee- month period Wix produced five different series of fifty Henry cards, with this 5th series from 1936 being their last. The backs bear some outrageous claims, including “Kensitas – your throat protection against irritation.”. These charming colour pictures are sure to raise a smile. Cards size 78 x 65mm.
