Winston Churchill 1965
A & B C Miscellaneous Trade Cards Winston Churchill 1965 Winston Churchill 1965 L55 - Millions watched on television the funeral procession of Britain’s great wartime leader Winston Churchill who died in January 1965 and almost immediately after A & BC produced this set of cards commemorating his life from his schooldays as ‘a troublesome boy’, via his Boer War exploits, chequered political career in and out of office, his family life with darling “Clemmie” and children, the war and the twilight years right up to his 86th birthday party. Using black and white photographs from the Mirror and Radio Times Hulton Picture Library and backed by texts describing the main events, this series uniquely captures almost a century of history in which one man played a leading role to earn a place among the nation’s heroes. It should be noted that some cards have variations in the width of the margins due to the way they were cut by the printers, but this in no way detracts from the content. The cards are size 82 x 55mm.

Barratt Miscellaneous Trade Cards People and Places 1965 People and Places 1965 25 - This colourful little set depicts scenes from around the world so for instance we see a map of Japan with girls in traditional dress or the Islands of Samoa with native dancers. Among the other people and places featured are Masai Warriors of East Africa, South Americans of the Andes Mountains, cowboys in the South of France, Beduins of the Middle East and Eskimos of the Arctic regions. There are some curious inclusions though like the card for India which is a vast country is full of colourful regional differences but is represented only by a Mahout and his elephant. Also considering there is a whole world to choose from why include a man and his coracle from Ireland or a bullock sleigh in Madeira and the card for Salvador does not even feature people just an erupting volcano. That said there is plenty to enjoy about these cards which are backed by interesting facts about the regions featured. This set was also issued by Askeys, Barratt & Co, Browne Bros., Clover Dairies, Gowers & Burgons, Hitchman’s Dairies, Lamberts Tea, Ringtons Ltd and Wilcocks & Wilcocks and these are the same except for the company name on the reverse. The cards are size 65 x 35mm.
