Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) 50 - Road safety was a real problem in 1934 when these were originally issued and the colourful cards illustrate some of the dangers. Actually aside from issues with tramlines and using hand signals as there were no indicators most these safety instructions are still relevant today, but it is the charming vintage pictures which are the real attraction. The warnings include not overtaking on bends, not squeezing through traffic if you are a motor-cyclist, how to pass animals, how to correct a skid and not to throw anything from a moving car as well as how to cross safely. There is plenty of further information on the card backs. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Foh Chong (China) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Chinese Series c1930 Chinese Series c1930 M10 - Not being able to read the Chinese characters on the front we can’t tell you much about this set other than the fact that it has pink borders, is numbered in English on the front and appears to show ancient characters from Chinese history or myth with the artwork nicely done in a traditional style. The red printed backs show a building, presumably their headquarters, along with the company name in English and a trade mark. Foh Chong were among a number of Chinese firms producing cigarettes and issuing cards in the 1920-30s period.

Cope Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Toy Models (The Country Fair) c1930 Toy Models (The Country Fair) c1930 L25 - These 25 cards are delightful, they were designed to be cut out so you could make your own old fashioned fair. The fronts contain lovely colour pictures with instructions on how to cut them out and put them together so they stand up. Amongst the charming stalls you could reproduce are the Cokernut Shy (which today we would spell coconut), Punch and Judy, Houpla, Ginger-Beer stall and a Toffee stand. Also included are the turnstile with entry priced at 3d each, a colourful Merry-Go-Round, Swings, Performing Donkeys, a Gipsy Fortune Teller, Hurdy-Gurdy machine complete with monkey, Ice-Cream Barrow, Water Chute, Photographer with tripod camera and the Fat Lady’s Tent (most inappropriate these days) where the sign says she weighs “under 2 ½ ton”! A curious inclusion is the Motor Dragon, which presumably was a dragon disguised motor which drove around the fairground?
