The first card pictures the grand edifice of the British Museum then includes items such as the Elgin Marbles, the Rosetta Stone which provided invaluable clues to deciphering the writings of ancient Egypt, the First Folio of the works of William Shakespeare, Greek Jury Tickets, masks from Sri Lanka etc. Card 18 pictures the old London Museum (which in more recent years amalgamated with other London collections to form the Museum of London near the Barbican) and some of its artefacts such as the remains of a Roman Galley, a model of the Old London Bridge in 1603, early fire-fighting appliances, tally sticks, Roman lights and London apprentice relics. There are two holes punched on the left-hand side of the cards and the backs tell us that once you collected a set you could forward these and the company would bind them into an artistic cover at no cost. This particular set is the large size descriptive back issue which was also issued in Australia and New Zealand with different addresses to send off to. A set was also produced in Britain with a back without descriptions or holes but advertising the company’s cigarettes and a booklet cover was available for these large size cards. In the case of the British and New Zealand descriptive issues these were also available in a standard size. This is a fascinating set with cards size 78 x 64.
