Pattreiouex (Senior Service) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Sights of Britain 2nd Series (Smaller Caption) 1936 Sights of Britain 2nd Series (Smaller Caption) 1936 M48 - J.A. Pattreiouex Ltd of Manchester, the makers of Senior Service Cigarettes, were noted for specialising in photographic cards during the 1930s, including Sights of Britain 2nd Series. The 'sights' are both natural and man-made - the likes of Glencoe, Snowdon, Lake Windermere, Mullion Cove and the Wye Valley on the one hand, and Chester Cathedral, Eton College, Caernarvon Castle and Edinburgh's Princes Street on the other. We also see Cutty Sark and HMS Victory. All fine photos backed by highly informative texts, and, as I'm sure you will agree, all worthy choices, the kind of subjects you would expect. But there are also one or two surprises - the Manchester Ship Canal with factory chimneys smoking in the background, Southampton's King George graving dock and Croydon aerodrome's main passenger terminal designed to cope with 'ever-growing air traffic'. Wells, Glastonbury & Wookey are also pictured. Size 76 x 51mm
