Interesting Animals 1953
Marcantonio Animals & Wildlife Interesting Animals 1953 Interesting Animals 1953 50 - In the 1950s, when this set was issued, ‘Teddy Bear Lollies’ were a treat for children living in South London – not only for their delicious taste, but also because they included one of fifty Interesting Animal cards. These are unusual in that they are black ink drawings of animals rather than photos. We don’t know who was responsible for the pictures, but they are really good and show the creatures in their natural habitat. Included are exotic animals such as a moose, leopard, seal, polar bear, kangaroo, hippopotamus, lynx, lion, giraffe, tiger and camel, as well as the more familiar like cows, dogs, cats, rabbits, goat, pig and horse. The numbered backs give information about the creatures featured and details of a special album which could be obtained in exchange for 12 wrappers and ninepence in stamps. A lovely set for anyone interested in the natural world with cards size 68 x 36mm.
