Sarony Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Museum Series Descriptive back 1927 Museum Series Descriptive back 1927 L25 - This set contains black and white pictures of items from the British and London Museums with detailed descriptions on the card backs. 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.

Westminster Tobacco Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Australia 2nd Series (Plain back) 1933 Australia 2nd Series (Plain back) 1933 36 - This set was prepared around 1933 but never actually issued and pictures scenes from around Australia. Unfortunately the backs are plain so aside from the title on the front there is no other information. What is nice about this set is that as well as the usual tourist spots such as the Captain Cook monument, Wilson Hall in Melbourne, Leura Falls in the Blue Mountains, Mount Buffalo, the Brisbane River, the Botanical Gardens Adelaide and Martin Place, Sydney there are unusual scenes of showing people and places of work such as pearl fishermen, carting timber in Victoria, Tasmanian hop fields, a pineapple plantation, , cotton growing, a drover’s camp, a South Australian Vineyard, harvesting wheat and the Golden Mile in Western Australia or involved in leisure pursuits such as climbing Mount Feathertop in Victoria, sailing in Sydney Harbour or enjoying the races at the Melbourne Cup. Also including is the royal visit for the state opening of Australia’s new capital Canberra. A fascinating set with card size 66 x 35mm

Hill Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Views of Interest 1st Series Spinet House back 1938 Views of Interest 1st Series Spinet House back 1938 L48 - Back in 1938 when we originally reviewed this set we wrote “it is difficult to imagine better cards of this type than these beautifully hand-coloured real photos” and we would stand by that statement today. Included in this set are well-known landmarks like the Clifton Suspension Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Blackpool Tower, Buckingham Palace, York Minster, Caernarvon Castle and the Liver Building in Liverpool, but also included are natural wonders and views like Cheddar Gorge, Kynance Cove and Derwentwater as well as views of Cardiff, Sheffield, Hull and Newcastle which don’t often appear on cards. These must have proved popular as Hill continued with another four series of different views in 1938 and 1939. The numbered backs give plenty of information about the featured subject and “The Spinet House”, but was also issued with “issued with Sunripe & Spinet Oval Cigarettes” instead. A fine set with cards size 78 x 64mm
