Notaras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Views of China 1925 Views of China 1925 24 - Today’s visitors will have no difficulty recognising some of the country’s famous historic sights such as the Great Wall or Peking’s (Beijing) Forbidden City as these are still very much on the tourist trail, but the street and river scenes below to another age without a skyscraper anywhere and the policeman on point duty in Shanghai looks as if he’s having a quiet time. The backs advertise ‘Silver Car Cigarettes’, but contain no information on the scenes pictured so we only have the caption for explanation. A fascinating glimpse into old China with cards size 69 x 45mm

Carreras Royalty Regalia Series 1925 Regalia Series 1925 EL10 - This is a very good set with fine colour pictures with glazed fronts of Britain's priceless royal regalia, most of which can be seen in the Tower of London. Carreras issued three different size sets on this subject – a small set of 50 a large set of 20 and this extra-large set of 10.

Gallaher Animals & Wildlife Wild Animals 1937 Wild Animals 1937 48 - This set was issued in 1937 and when it was reviewed in our magazine that year we described it as being nicely produced and said that “the compilers have shown commendable originality in the choice of subjects, many out of the way types such as the platypus, rare foxes, jerboa, tenrec, panda, pangolin and others being illustrated as well as many of the more familiar wild animals”. We would have to agree with this statement, but would add that these have first class colour artwork and the text includes some delightful touches such as the puma “purrs when pleased and like a kitten will jump to catch butterflies or play for hours by itself at hide-and-seek.” It also added that it is “friendly to man”, but alas man has not proved a good friend to the puma or many other species. We can’t praise this series highly enough. Cards size 63 x 37mm.

Churchman Ships & Shipping The Story of Navigation 1936 The Story of Navigation 1936 50 - When Queen Mary launched the new Cunard liner which bore her name in September 1934 it was like a tonic for a nation emerging from the long years of the depression. The superb vessel marked the latest chapter in a struggle to conquer the sea, a story which had begun thousands of years earlier when primitive man first crossed a river by floating on a log. It was these two extremes which Churchmans chose for the first and last cards in this series. The set continues with a Welsh coracle, a Viking ship and an Elizabethan galleon as well as Nelson’s flagship “Victory” which is now preserved at Portsmouth for all to admire. Also included are the magnificent clipper “Cutty Sark” which is still a major tourist attraction at Greenwich, “S.S. Great Britain” which is permanently on display in Bristol as a lasting tribute to Isambard Kingdom Brunel her talented designer plus great liners of the 20th century such as “Mauretania” which for more than 20 years was the speed queen of the North Atlantic and of course, the “Queen Mary” which is now a tourist attraction at Long Beach, California. You can re-live these great moments in maritime history with this finely produced colour series with plenty of facts on the reverse. These cards are size 67 x 36mm. This set was also reprinted in 1999.

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Gran Pop by Lawson Wood 1934 Gran Pop by Lawson Wood 1934 L50 - Produced by Carreras in 1934 it is a series of 50 cards featuring ‘Gran-Pop’, a cartoon ape, in humorous colour drawings by the English painter and illustrator Lawson Wood. As well as appearing on cards the ‘Gran-Pop’ character also appeared in a series of annuals that were sold round the world. Lawson Wood was very much concerned with animal welfare and as well as being a member of the Royal Zoological Society he also founded a sanctuary for old animals, but the apes and other animals in his drawings find themselves in very human situations with suitably humorous captions. The card backs contain sepia photos and text showing the manufacture of cigarettes including an illustration of the Arcadia Works of Carreras Ltd in Hampstead Road, London where we are told “happy, healthy workpeople make good cigarettes with care, pride and conscience under the most hygienic manufacturing conditions”. Size 80 x 63mm. This was also produced in a smaller format size 70 x 41mm.

Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards In Town Tonight 1938 In Town Tonight 1938 50 - In the 1930,s the Saturday evening radio show was ‘In Town Tonight’ which began with the cry of a Piccadilly flower seller in the background as “we stop the roar of London’s traffic.” The recording was the voice of Mrs Emma Baker whose picture appears on card no. 2 in Churchman’s 1938 series of fifty, which takes its title from the programme. The basis of the show, and the cards, was to meet people from all walks of life who happened to be in London that night. So on these cards we meet the likes of Cyclone Danny Carter, the international stunt rider; John Tussaud, Madame Tussaud’s great grandson; Christina Foyle of booksellers fame; Dante, the master magician; Prince Monolulu, the racing tipster; Captain Slocum, British Airways pilot; and engine-driver William Hagland who apparently used the cigarette card of himself to prove his identity when appearing as a witness in court. Size 68 x 36mm

Ardath Film & Stage Stars Pre-1940 Film Stars Series GP2 1939 Film Stars Series GP2 1939 M44 - The cards show black and white pictures of glamorous ladies including big names such as Betty Grable, Ann Sheridan, Joan Blondell and Olivia De Havilland. ‘Film Stars’ is a misnomer as some, like Helena Garvin, are models, whilst others are showgirls from the Windmill Theatre. The rest are not well-known although some appeared in films such as singer Shirley Ross who was in ‘Some Like It Hot’. It says something about how obscure many are that Monica Bishop is listed as ‘able to stand-in for well-known star Victoria Hopper’? and Muriel Baron is a pantomime boy. Size 80 x 56mm.

Gallaher Sports Miscellaneous Sporting Personalities 1936 Sporting Personalities 1936 48 - Plenty of sporting fixtures take place in a year and this was no doubt true in 1936 when Gallahers issued, with their “De-Luxe” cigarettes, a series of 48 Sporting Personalities. Many of the names will still be remembered today, such was their brilliance – Alex James, Dixie Dean, Clifford Bastin, Len Harvey, Kid Berg, Gordon Richards, Steve Donoghue, Frank Wooley, Jack Hobbs and Patsy Hendren – just a few of the stars in this sporting hall of fame. Other colourful characters include Bertram Mills of circus fame who put up £10,000 for the capture of the Loch Ness monster, Malcolm Campbell, Tom Webster who was a famous cartoonist popular for his sports cartoons in the Daily Mail and Lord Clydesdale who was the first person to fly over Mount Everest. The excellent colour portraits are pictured against an appropriate background and there is plenty of information on the numbered backs. A must for any collection and size 63 x 37mm.

Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Wings Over the Empire 1939 Wings Over the Empire 1939 M48 - It was rather unfortunate timing for Churchman’s to issue a series called Wings Over the Empire in July 1939, when Britain was on the brink of war and the only wings which the empire would see over them for several years were those belonging to German and Japanese aircraft. That having been said this is an excellent series of colour pictures including many breathtakingly beautiful views. The first twenty cover the British Isles working out from London to the west of Ireland before flying past Gibraltar and Malta to India, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Burma, followed by Southern and Central Africa, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The fascinating text include some nice little touches like New Zealand is “the pocket edition of the world” or the text for the picture of Sydney cricket ground which reads “cricket is essentially an English sport”! The set also refers to Bombay (now Mumbai) as the “Manchester of India” and says that Blackpool “possesses all the essentials of a health resort”? The inclusion of Mount Everest stretches things a little because the peak was not actually within the Empire, nor indeed was Eire (of which Dublin and Killarney are pictured). These aerial views take us on a tour of a world that was soon to change forever at a time when faraway places were still exotic and the sun never set on the Empire. These cards are size 68 x 53mm.

Dominion Tobacco Ships & Shipping Old Ships 2nd Series 1935 Old Ships 2nd Series 1935 25 - Dominion Tobacco was taken over by the Godfrey Phillips group in 1941, but during its short period of independence this London-based company produced four series all featuring old ships. This set is the 2nd Series which covers Naval ships from the late 17th to late 19th Centuries. The black and white drawings show the vessels in intricate detail, but it is the backs that supply the greatest interest because they reveal so many intriguing stories about those troubled times. For example, the French 74-gunner “Terrible” was captured by Hawke and added to the Royal Navy, the name later being given to a new cruiser built in 1895. The French 84-gunner “Franklin”, built in 1796, was captured in the Battle of the Nile and became H.M.S “Canopus”, but she was so fast that the British built ten ships to the same design between 1821 and 1832 and “Canopus” herself was still in service in 1850. Then there was H.M.S “Bellerophon” upon which Napoleon was brought to England after the battle of Waterloo, arriving at Torbay on July 24th 1815. The card tells us “She was surrounded by sight-seers who dared everything to catch a glimpse of Napoleon and if they succeeded the air was rent with cheers”. Fascinating stuff. The cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Churchman Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards World Wonders Old and New Unissued c1955 World Wonders Old and New Unissued c1955 50 - This set features some remarkable subjects, some of which are not covered elsewhere on cards. These were never actually issued, but the text was prepared around 1953 as the latest date quoted in the texts was November 1952 for the explosion of the first hydrogen bomb. The colourful cards include natural marvels such as the Victoria and Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon and Mount Everest, phenomena such as tidal waves, water spouts, geysers, Krakatoa and the Aurora Australis, man-made wonders like the Pyramids, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Colosseum, Stonehenge and Great Wall of China as well as twentieth century engineering feats such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Empire State Building, Panama Canal and liner the Queen Elizabeth. Most interesting of all are ten modern developments which had particular significance in the decade leading up to 1952, especially the war years. Fascinating stuff. Card size 66 x 36mm.
