Ovaltine Miscellaneous Trade Cards Do You Know 1968 Do You Know 1968 25 - This interesting and colourful set covers the sort of questions that these days we can easily find the answer to online, but in the 1960s, when this was issued, would require a trip to the library such as how a Brazil nut grows, how a grasshopper sings, how a nettle stings, how fast an ostrich can travel or why a billiard cue is bevelled. Comprehensive explanations are given on the card backs. Our favourite has to be ‘Why a horse-shoe is used for luck’ as this has a local connection. Apparently these are considered lucky because legend says that St Dunstan, who was born just down the road, was noted for his skill in shoeing horses and he shoed the devil’s hoof, but this caused the devil so much pain he vowed never to enter a place where a horse-shoe was displayed – so now you know! This set was also produced by B.T. Ltd, Ching & Co., Cromwell Stores, S. Prior and Sweetule Products and was also part of a set of 50 produced by Liam Devlin & Sons – see website for availability. This set is size 68 x 36mm.

Amaran Tea Miscellaneous Trade Cards The Circus 1968 The Circus 1968 25 - This fascinating little set covers some of the history of the circus including Philip Astley’s amphitheatre where amazing riding feats were performed, ancient costumes and famous characters from the past well as covering everyday circus life in the late 1960s. What will surprise modern audiences is the range of different animal acts that were acceptable then, including chimps, lions, sealions, elephants, tigers, horses and even what looks like polar bears. There are glimpses behind the scenes showing circus children helping to move a vehicle and horses at rest as well as circus acts such as knife-throwing, trapeze acrobats, bareback riders, clowns, wire walkers, balancing acts and trick cyclists. With informative text on the back and nice colour pictures on the front this would make an excellent addition to any collection. Cards size 68 x 36mm
