Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues History of the Motor Car black back re-issue 1974 History of the Motor Car black back re-issue 1974 50 - This is a reissue by Brooke Bond of their 1968 blue back set which contains superb artwork by Kenneth Rush illustrating road vehicles from the days of steam power through to the latest (1960s) high performance racing cars, with Peter Hull’s descriptive backs brim full of interesting facts. Included, of course, is the Mini or more correctly, as card no. 46 states, Morris Mini Minor, which we are told was the “first really revolutionary mass-produced British car whose remarkable features were its unique front-wheel drive design with a transverse engine enclosing the gearbox in the crankcase, tiny 10-inch wheels and all-independent variable rubber suspension.” If you prefer speed to small and practical then you will appreciate some of the other cars in this set such as the 1935 ‘Bluebird’ in which Malcom Campbell broke the 300mph speed record, a Ferrari P4 with its V12 engine, the Cooper-Climax Grand Prix winner from 1958, the sleek 1948 Jaguar XK120, a 1938 Alfa Romeo and 1936 BMW etc. An ideal set for any car enthusiast. Size 68 x 36mm.

Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues Trees in Britain black back re-issue 1973 Trees in Britain black back re-issue 1973 50 - What we love about Brooke Bond sets, particularly those issued in the 1960s, is the amount of thought and research put into them – they were designed to be both attractive and educational and they don’t disappoint. This set looks at British trees, but as well as picturing the full-grown tree in all its glory you also get another card showing the leaves, seeds, fruit or nuts of that tree and the backs give loads of fascinating information about the species. For instance we learn that the Larch was introduced to Britain from Europe and the houses of Venice in Italy are supported on piles of Larch. Also included are the Scots Pine, the Stone Pine which is rare in Britain, the Juniper which produces berries often used to flavour gin, the long living Yew, Common Lime, the Sycamore with its winged seedpods, Horse Chestnut, the native Holly, the rare Spindle Tree, Gean or Wild Cherry which produces glorious white blossoms, Hawthorn who’s haws are popular with birds in winter, Rowan, Crab Apple, London Plane, the Elm which was once common, but was depleted due to disease, Silver Birch, Hornbeam, the familiar Hazel, Beech, Sweet Chestnut which produces chestnuts that can be roasted and eaten, Holm, Common Oak our most well-known tree, the Strawberry Tree and Ash one of the most common trees. An album was original available to house these cards which could be obtained from grocers at 6d. These black back cards are size 68 x 36mm and the original set was issued in 1973 with a blue back.
