Our Favourites 1935
Phillips Dogs and Pets Our Favourites 1935 Our Favourites 1935 M48 - The current craze for looking at cute animal pictures online is not new although in the pre-computer age you had to view them on cigarette cards like these that were issued in 1935. The black and white photos picture different animals with a humorous caption underneath. For instance a dog and puppy is titled ‘A chip off the old block’, there is a picture of chimps with a camera titled ‘A perfect picture, two dogs and a bone is captioned ‘The eternal triangle’, a cat playing with a pull-cord is titled ‘Blind Devotion’, dogs in giant flowerpots are titled ‘Gone to pot’, a goat climbing up to reach some leaves has the heading ‘Stolen fruits are sweetest etc. We have to say that some of the pictures use animals in ways that would not be acceptable today such as the elephant riding a bike and chimps dressed as humans, but overall this is a lovely set. The numbered backs contain an advert for ‘De Reszke The Aristocrat of Cigarettes” but no text about the subject. Cards size 60 x 53mm
