Sarony Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Saronicks 1929 Saronicks 1929 50 - ‘Saronicks’ illustrating limericks quoted on the backs together with a statement that they are from the “Complete Limerick Book”. The same series of cards was also produced by Major Drapkin under the title ‘Limericks’. Sarony’s ‘Saronicks’ came in two sizes, standard and medium (This one being the standard size) enjoy the comic situations portrayed by the artist in black and red on a white background, not always politically correct for today’s climate, the Jews at the bus stop in Kew, the colonial bellowing at his Indian servant, etc, but they all raise a smile, and the style is definitely 1920s. Size 64 x 35mm

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

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.

Murray Ships & Shipping The Story of Ships 1940 The Story of Ships 1940 50 - This set was issued briefly towards the end of 1940 but withdrawn in February 1941.

Along the way we see Columbus’s ship the Santa Maria, Drake’s Golden Hind, Nelson’s Victory, Brunel’s Great Eastern, the battlecruiser HMS Hood and the liner Queen Mary. There is plenty of text on the back to keep you informed of the developments and history of ships. An excellent set for any collection. Cards size 67 x 40mm

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Malayan Industries 1929 Malayan Industries 1929 27 - Carreras had already produced a set in 1928 titled Malayan Scenes (see website for availability), but clearly their fascination with the Malaya was not at an end as in 1929 they issued another set, but this time looking at industries in the region. These interesting black and white photos, backed by plenty of facts, show such things as tapping a rubber tree, sterilising the fruit of oil palms, a banana plant, a coconut estate, pineapple cultivation, transporting pipes using elephants, creping machinery on a rubber estate, betel nut palms, kapok trees which were ideal as they were quick growing and provided fibre for stuffing mattresses etc. and oil for soap, drying rattans to make canes, the transportation of coconut by oxen and boat, milling sugar cane and irrigation for rice planting. In those days most of the processes were hands-on and it is fascinating to see the use of animals and natives at work. Card no. 10 pictures the unusual hats worn by Chinese women labourers in the oil palm industry and we are told that these fringed hats denote their married state. Even by 1929 many of these processes were being mechanised and nowhere is the contrast between the old and the new more obvious than on card no. 9 which shows a bucket dredge at a tin mine, a major advance in mining, but in the foreground a man is crossing a rickety walkway carrying a load on his head. A real snapshot in time and size 69 x 36mm.

Incidentally the back of the Lupin card tells us it will grow in poor soil as it has the power of utilizing nitrogen from the air to enrich the ground in which it grows making it suitable for any garden. This series is also issued by G Phillips.

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.

Phillips Birds, Butterflies & Moths British Butterflies Transfers 1936 British Butterflies Transfers 1936 25 - These transfers picture in colour butterflies from around the British Isles all set against a black background with their name in the white border at the bottom. The backs give information about the butterfly including such things as size and where it can be found as well as suppling instructions for how to remove the transfer from its backing. We are told to “place the transfer in water for 30 seconds, slide the design off the backing paper on to a white base, squeegee flat and leave to dry”. Frankly these cards are too nice for that sort of treatment and are best enjoyed as they are. Among the butterfly featured are the Swallowtail, Peacock, Large Garden White, Painted Lady, Common Blue, Orange Tip, Silver-Washed Fritillary, Red Admiral, Purple Emperor, Small Tortoiseshell etc. These Transfers were also available in card format with a dark blue or light blue back and were also issued by Abdulla in 1935. Size 67 x 35mm.

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
