Hill Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Our Empire 1929 Our Empire 1929 30 - You might imagine from the title this is a set of lovely views from places within the British empire, but you would be wrong. In fact these are photos of leaders, members of parliament etc. Beginning with King George V and his two sons the set then pictures Westminster, the Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald and other members of the Labour government including Margaret Bondfield the first woman to become a member of the Cabinet (that’s a good quiz question for you!) and the Rt. Hon. Wedgwood Benn as well as statesmen and leaders from New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and Australia. There is plenty of informative text on the backs which gives a background to an interesting time when for the first time Britain had a Labour government. This set iwas issued in a larger format with cards size 78 x 67mm, but this set is size 66 x 38mm.

Wix Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Builders of Empire 1937 Builders of Empire 1937 50 - Issued in 1937 at a time when parts of the British Empire such as India and South Africa were already calling for independence this set looks at the royalty, statesmen, warriors and explorers who had carved their names in history and provided the foundations for that empire. Originally issued in packets of Kensitas cigarettes which are described on the back as “the mild cigarette – just what the doctor ordered” these contain excellent colour pictures of figures such as Lord Kitchener, David Livingstone, King George V, Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, author Rudyard Kipling who was nicknamed “Poet of the Empire”, Sir Francis Drake, Florence Nightingale etc. Obviously times change and some of those included are now notorious like Cecil Rhodes, but also included are some we had never heard of such as Sir Eyre Coote who defended Southern India against the French or Baroness Burdett-Coutts who lived from 1814 to 1906 devoting her life to practical philanthropy and overseas missionary work. The pictures are backed by an informative text making this a must for any collection. Cards size 70 x 40mm.
