Hill Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Views of Interest 1st Series Sunripe and Spinet Ovals back 1938 Views of Interest 1st Series Sunripe and Spinet Ovals 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 “issued with Sunripe & Spinet Oval Cigarettes”, but was also issued with “The Spinet House” instead. A fine set with cards size 78 x 64mm

Hill Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Views of Interest 2nd Series 1938 Views of Interest 2nd Series 1938 L48 - Britain’s turbulent history has left us with a rich legacy of castles. Their story provides a fascinating insight into the wars and power-struggles this country has endured down through the centuries and there is no better presentation of these amazing structures than the 48 castles featured in this set. Nowadays most are open to the public, so let’s have a quick look at some – Norwich with its magnificent Norman keep houses a wonderful museum, Lancaster (a goal until a few years ago), Dover (a landmark for travellers from the continent), Nottingham (familiar to collectors as the John Player trademark), Tintagel (with its Arthurian connections), Taunton (re-opened as an award winning museum) and Windsor (now fully restored following that terrible fire). This set of hand-coloured photos issued in 1938 is highly recommended. Size 82 x 63mm
