Westminster Tobacco Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Australia 2nd Series (Plain back) 1933 Australia 2nd Series (Plain back) 1933 36 - This set was prepared around 1933 but never actually issued and pictures scenes from around Australia. Unfortunately the backs are plain so aside from the title on the front there is no other information. What is nice about this set is that as well as the usual tourist spots such as the Captain Cook monument, Wilson Hall in Melbourne, Leura Falls in the Blue Mountains, Mount Buffalo, the Brisbane River, the Botanical Gardens Adelaide and Martin Place, Sydney there are unusual scenes of showing people and places of work such as pearl fishermen, carting timber in Victoria, Tasmanian hop fields, a pineapple plantation, , cotton growing, a drover’s camp, a South Australian Vineyard, harvesting wheat and the Golden Mile in Western Australia or involved in leisure pursuits such as climbing Mount Feathertop in Victoria, sailing in Sydney Harbour or enjoying the races at the Melbourne Cup. Also including is the royal visit for the state opening of Australia’s new capital Canberra. A fascinating set with card size 66 x 35mm

Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) Safety First 1934 (CCS reprint 2000) 50 - Road safety was a real problem in 1934 when these were originally issued and the colourful cards illustrate some of the dangers. Actually aside from issues with tramlines and using hand signals as there were no indicators most these safety instructions are still relevant today, but it is the charming vintage pictures which are the real attraction. The warnings include not overtaking on bends, not squeezing through traffic if you are a motor-cyclist, how to pass animals, how to correct a skid and not to throw anything from a moving car as well as how to cross safely. There is plenty of further information on the card backs. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Cope Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Toy Models (The Country Fair) c1930 Toy Models (The Country Fair) c1930 L25 - These 25 cards are delightful, they were designed to be cut out so you could make your own old fashioned fair. The fronts contain lovely colour pictures with instructions on how to cut them out and put them together so they stand up. Amongst the charming stalls you could reproduce are the Cokernut Shy (which today we would spell coconut), Punch and Judy, Houpla, Ginger-Beer stall and a Toffee stand. Also included are the turnstile with entry priced at 3d each, a colourful Merry-Go-Round, Swings, Performing Donkeys, a Gipsy Fortune Teller, Hurdy-Gurdy machine complete with monkey, Ice-Cream Barrow, Water Chute, Photographer with tripod camera and the Fat Lady’s Tent (most inappropriate these days) where the sign says she weighs “under 2 ½ ton”! A curious inclusion is the Motor Dragon, which presumably was a dragon disguised motor which drove around the fairground?

Carreras Dogs and Pets Greyhound Racing Game Instruction Leaflet 1926 Greyhound Racing Game Instruction Leaflet 1926 L1 - This leaflet was produced in connection with a set of L52 Greyhound Racing Game cards (see website for availability) and give instructions on how to play the game. The cards included 15 whips, 16 obstacles, 10 dogs, 10 greyhound (single and groups) and 1 hare. These days hare coursing is rare and rightly so, but obviously in the 1920s this was not the case as the card set was all about chasing the hare. The basic premise of the game is that as soon as the hare card is played the first player to play a single greyhound card is the winner. When scoring the winner is awarded points for cards in the losers’ hands i.e 5 points for each single greyhound, 1 for each obstacle card etc. When opened flat the leaflet is size 88 x 89mm

Millhoff Animals & Wildlife Real Photographs 1st Series glossy front (Comic Animal Pictures) 1931 Real Photographs 1st Series glossy front (Comic Animal Pictures) 1931 27 - What’s not to love about these charming sepia animal pictures which are humorously captioned underneath. For instance the picture of a dog with a bone is titled “A bone to pick with you” whilst another depicts three concerned looking cats on stools with the caption “was that a mouse?” It is not just cats and dogs either as there are cattle, horses and chimps and one card even features a small boy feeding a dog. It is said today that many hours are ‘wasted’ looking online at the antics of animals and perhaps this set is a 1930s version of this. The backs are numbered and contain an advert for “De Reszke – The aristocrat of Cigarettes” and the Millhoff name. This set was also produced with matt photos (see website for availability) and both are size 66 x 35mm

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Views of London 1929 Views of London 1929 27 - Pretty well every major landmark is included, from Marble Arch in the west to Tower Bridge in the east. More than eighty years after these cards came out you could still use them to organise your own tour of the capital and the texts will tell you all you need to know about the sights. Particularly fascinating, though, is the amount of detail revealed in the stunningly clear pictures – you might even be able to make out, with the aid of a magnifier, the numbers on open-top buses or read the advertisements on buildings – and then there are the horse-drawn cabs, a delivery boy cycling past the Horse Guards and a throng of citizens going about their business. Fascinating stuff! Size 68 x 36mm

Wintermans Flowers and the Garden Disappearing Rain Forest 1991 Disappearing Rain Forest 1991 L30 - We love the colourful pictures in this set, but even more impressive is the research behind the photos as the backs are full of information about the subjects which live in the rain forest. Included are the Epiphytic Orchid from Brazil, the Pitcher Plant of Malaysia, a Tarantula spider, Leaf Cutter Ants, tropical butterflies from Peru, a Stick Insect from Trinidad, a Common Iguana, Arrow Poison Frog, Mud-Puddle Frog, Blue & Yellow Macaw, Toucan, Three-Toed Sloth, Capybara, Giant Anteater, Long-Tailed Macaque, Ring-Tailed Lemur and Golden Lion Tamarin. As the title of the set tells us these precious rain forest habitats are being destroyed. Sadly as a result of the actions of man we are losing rain forest at a rapid rate and it would truly be a tragedy if the wonderful plants and creatures that call these places home are wiped out in the wild. Cards size 89 x 50mm.

Hill Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Our Empire 1929 Our Empire 1929 30 - You might imagine from the title this is a set of lovely views from places within the British empire, but you would be wrong. In fact these are photos of leaders, members of parliament etc. Beginning with King George V and his two sons the set then pictures Westminster, the Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald and other members of the Labour government including Margaret Bondfield the first woman to become a member of the Cabinet (that’s a good quiz question for you!) and the Rt. Hon. Wedgwood Benn as well as statesmen and leaders from New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and Australia. There is plenty of informative text on the backs which gives a background to an interesting time when for the first time Britain had a Labour government. This set iwas issued in a larger format with cards size 78 x 67mm, but this set is size 66 x 38mm.

Players Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Boy Scout and Girl Guide Patrol Signs and Emblems 1933 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) Boy Scout and Girl Guide Patrol Signs and Emblems 1933 (C.C.S. reprint 2001) 50 - Originally issued in 1933 these reprints from 2001 picture both the patrol sign or emblem and the actual creature or plant on which this is based. The first half of the set are all Boy Scout patrol signs including the Beaver, Curlew and Panther and the text on the back tells us about the creature as well as which badges this patrol should specialize in and their call. For instance members of Fox patrol have a call or bark of “Ha Ha” and should study woodcraft and the habits of wildlife. The remainder of the set are Girl Guide emblems which are all bird or plant related and include Swallow, Robin, Primrose and Poppy. As with the backs of the Boy Scout cards the creature or plant is described on the reverse, but instead of a call the patrol motto such as that for Chaffinch Patrol of “Play the game and play it well” is given. This is an excellent set with cards size 68 x 36mm.

The fifty cards with colour pictures give hints on how to make-do and mend as well as more ambitious projects like wall building or making a weather vane and the backs give you all the information you need to complete your project. Amongst the hints are instructions for removing salt-water stains from brown shoes (does this only work on brown shoes?), removing rusted screws, repairing broken china, re-gilding a picture frame, securing loose knife-handles and laying linoleum. Be warned though, there are some definite “don’t try this at home” hints such as making your own wireless earth, mending electric wires by twisting, soldering and covering with black tape and making your own fire-lighters by soaking a cinder in paraffin! – plus numerous other handy tips.

Phillips Dogs and Pets Our Favourites 1935 Our Favourites 1935 M48 - The current craze for looking at cute animal pictures online is not new although in the pre-computer age you had to view them on cigarette cards like these that were issued in 1935. The black and white photos picture different animals with a humorous caption underneath. For instance a dog and puppy is titled ‘A chip off the old block’, there is a picture of chimps with a camera titled ‘A perfect picture, two dogs and a bone is captioned ‘The eternal triangle’, a cat playing with a pull-cord is titled ‘Blind Devotion’, dogs in giant flowerpots are titled ‘Gone to pot’, a goat climbing up to reach some leaves has the heading ‘Stolen fruits are sweetest etc. We have to say that some of the pictures use animals in ways that would not be acceptable today such as the elephant riding a bike and chimps dressed as humans, but overall this is a lovely set. The numbered backs contain an advert for ‘De Reszke The Aristocrat of Cigarettes” but no text about the subject. Cards size 60 x 53mm

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.
