How to Swim 1935
Ogdens Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards How to Swim 1935 How to Swim 1935 50 - Back in 1935, when Ogdens produced this set of 50 cards titled How to Swim, many people did not have the opportunity to learn to swim at school or with their families so this set would have been an invaluable learning tool. The swimming methods covered are the front and back crawl, double armed backstroke and breast stroke. The fronts bear colour pictures of ladies in swimsuits and matching bathing caps executing various swimming methods and the action is broken down into sections so, for instance, there are twelve cards for the breast stroke with the first four showing the leg positions, then we move on to the arm positions and breathing before putting it all together. The last couple of cards show inter-timing of arms and legs plus isolated limb action. The ladies appear in a different bathing costume for each of the different swimming styles and the backs are full of step-by-step instructions to help you achieve the perfect technique. With these cards you can have no excuse for not getting in the water! The same set was also issued by Higgnets. Size 68 x 36mm
