Hill Ships & Shipping Famous Ships Front varnished 1940 Famous Ships Front varnished 1940 50 - When these cards appeared in 1940 we described them as “a fine series produced in colour and full of interest at the present time. Fighting ships are well represented by such vessels as the Hood and the new aircraft carrier Illustrious. Commercial craft include crack liners such as the Queen Elizabeth and the now notorious Bremen. There are historic ships such as the Mayflower and the Victory, and vessels, which took part in the 1914-18 conflict. Altogether a valuable contribution to maritime history”. Also here is the ill-fated Lusitania and the Titanic. The Hood would join them in the ocean depths when she was sunk in 1942. The Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary were to end their days in Hong Kong and California. The Cutty Sark at Greenwich and the Victory at Portsmouth are reminders of Britain’s maritime heritage, as indeed is this fine set of cards. This set was also issued with a matt front. Size 63 x 38mm
