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

Morris Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Wax Art Series 1931 Wax Art Series 1931 25 - The 25 cards show pictures of items that have been embellished with artwork produced using melted sealing wax, a hobby that would appear to have died out. The first card in the set features an ink pen holder and, in what we are told is a simple way of making it more decorative, it is smeared with heated yellow wax, then when this has dried flat a stick of red wax is melted and the pen held so the hot wax is melted into the places marked for flowers. After this has cooled you model it into the flowers and then repeat the process for the green leaves, whilst the crossed over ribbons are created by rolling and attaching strips of warm wax. This was definitely not a craft for children as there must have been a real potential for hot wax related injuries! If you could master the pen holder then a whole new world opened up as there does not seem to be much you could not add wax art to. The set shows examples of pendants, boxes, brooches, vases, tumblers, a paper knife and even a matchbox decorated with flowers and edging. The backs contain all the information you need to give it a go so if you are looking for a new hobby to fill a long winter evening then you need look no further!

Marcovitch Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards The Story in Red and White 1955 The Story in Red and White 1955 L7 - The London firm of Marcovitch & Co. were taken over by United Kingdom Tobacco Ltd in 1929 and by 1931 were part of the Godfrey Phillips Group. In 1955 they issued a new brand of cigarettes “Red and White”. As part of the promotion of these new cigarettes a series of paper thin advertising inserts written in red on a white background with blank backs was issued. The first of these is an introduction which explains that as a special offer the first of these cigarettes came in an enamelled alloy cover which could be retained to protect future cigarettes. This is followed by an advert headed ‘Three Cheers for Red & White” which explains that the public have taken to the new brand due to high standards and a new manufacturing process. The following five adverts are all numbered and talk you through the reason these are so good and the processes involved. So we learn that they use a new cooler leaf conditioning method, less high-pressure, new air-streamed conditioning to separate the leaf from the stalk, improved filling methods and that these gentler delicately flavoured cigarettes are ideal for “the man who inhales”. A small size of six adverts was also originally produced. These are size 66 x 75mm.

Pattreiouex (Senior Service) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Britain from the Air 1939 Britain from the Air 1939 M48 - The pictures in this set may be black and white, but they are simply stunning and full of detail. They include popular tourist spots and important buildings which look even more impressive when seen from the skies. Included are Blackpool with its famous tower and people on the beach who are as small as ants, the tennis courts at Wimbledon, Beachy Head, Chesil Bank, Regatta Island at Henley, Warwick Castle, Torquay, Salisbury Cathedral, Nottingham city centre, Southend on Sea with several sailing boats in shot, a dramatic view of Brunel’s bridge over the Avon Gorge which is casting a shadow, the Royal Albert Hall, Walmer Castle, Buckingham Palace, Holyrood Palace, the fishing village of Mousehole, Tower Bridge, Conway Castle a view of the old Wembley Stadium taken in 1937 during the Festival of Youth and an infra-red photograph of the Isle of Wight as you have never seen it before. There is also plenty of interesting information on the card backs, but card number 5 picturing the Watford By-Pass is particularly prophetic showing us the junction and explaining how this “shows how the familiar roundabout looks to the airman” – as we now know it was not long before airmen began using these roads and landmarks for navigation during the 2nd World War. A lovely set with cards size 77 x 52mm

Pattreiouex (Senior Service) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Coastwise 1939 Coastwise 1939 M48 - Goodness know how many miles would be involved if you were to go around Britain’s coast with all the ins and outs, plus hundreds of islands large and small. Its diversity from sheer cliffs to wide expanses of golden sands is aptly demonstrated in this set, which was also issued by Gallaher Limited and Peter Jackson. Many of the views have hardly changed over the years especially some of the quiet West Country coves like Cadgwith and Combe Martin or the front at Frinton, but where you really notice a difference is in the fishing ports like Yarmouth and Lowestoft which are bustling with ships whereas today there are just the odd one or two and just look at all the trams lined up a Liverpool Pier with a liner in the background!. The charming black and white photos are backed by plenty of text, for instance card 15 explains that the picture shows a rescue in progress of the Italian ship ‘Nimbo’ which owing to a fierce gales could not be rescued by lifeboat so a rocket line was fired over to the ship and by means of the lifeline and breeches buoy the crew were safely hauled ashore. Cards size 77 x 52mm

Phillips Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Famous Minors 1936 Famous Minors 1936 50 - Godfrey Phillips 1936 series of 50 Famous Minors feature coloured portraits of celebrated men and women who achieved fame whilst "under age" before they were twenty-one - and an interesting bunch they are, including the likes of W.G. Grace, Napoleon, George Washington, Isaac Newton, Dick Whittington and John Cornwell the boy V.C. This gallant-hearted minor, we are told on the card back, "was serving as a sight-setter on a warship in World Ward I when, despite being mortally wounded he stayed at his post with the gun crew dead around him because he thought he might be needed." In the tradition of Nelson's famous signal "England expects" young John Cornwell had done his duty. Nelson is also included in the set and we learn that by the age of 12 he was enduring the hardship of his first voyage. He was to become ?the greatest sea captain the world has ever known, saving England from invasion, triumphing in the Battle of Trafalgar a victory bought at the price of death, his last words being "Thank God I have done my duty.

Lea Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Famous Views glossy front 1936 Famous Views glossy front 1936 48 - Between 1906 and 1938 the Manchester firm of R & J Lea issued several popular card series with their well-known cigarette brands Chairman, Recorder and Tournament. This particular series was issued in 1936 and titled “Famous Views” and was issued with Chairman Juniors Cigarettes. These contain splendid real black and white photos with interesting facts on the back, but the title is perhaps misleading as the first six cards are devoted to the funeral of H.M. King George V, including the last journey from King’s Cross, the lying in-state in Westminster Hall, the procession and service in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor where King Edward VIII sprinkled earth from Frogmore on his father’s coffin. The next seventeen cards are sights of London such as Piccadilly Circus and the Mansion House, followed by views, mostly of famous buildings, around Britain finishing with three of Manchester Lea’s home city including the Royal Exchange. The title maybe somewhat misleading as to the contents and we suspect the company may have substituted some of the original subjects at the last minute in order to cover the royal event swiftly within a series virtually ready for release when the King died in January. Whether this is indeed the case we shall never know, but this is an unusual and highly informative set which was also issued in a medium size (76 x 51mm). These cards are size 68 x 36mm.

Carreras Dogs and Pets Greyhound Racing Game 1926 Greyhound Racing Game 1926 L52 - This yellow bordered set with rounded corners contains 15 cards featuring whips i.e huntsmen and women, 16 obstacle cards picturing fences, hurdles and streams, 10 general dog cards, 10 greyhounds (a mixture of single greyhounds and groups) and 1 hare card. The backs feature a blue and white pattern and state that a “leaflet giving directions how to play can be obtained from your dealer”. The instruction leaflet (see website for availability) explained that as soon as the hare card was played the first player to play a single greyhound was the winner. The individual greyhounds are all based on actual greyhounds as they are depicted in racing jackets with their names at the top. They include ‘Mona’, ‘Lion Heart’, ‘Rover’, ‘Mayflower’ and ‘Black Eyed Susan’. A small size version (68 x 26mm) of these cards was also available (see website for availability). These would be ideal as a family game, but the pictures are sufficiently attractive and ‘of-their-time’ to make them well-worth adding to any collection. Size 78 x 62mm

Pattreiouex (Senior Service) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Sights of Britain 2nd Series (Large Caption) 1936 Sights of Britain 2nd Series (Large Caption) 1936 M48 - J.A. Pattreiouex Ltd of Manchester, the makers of Senior Service Cigarettes, were noted for specialising in photographic cards during the 1930s, including Sights of Britain 2nd Series. The 'sights' are both natural and man-made - the likes of Glencoe, Snowdon, Lake Windermere, Mullion Cove and the Wye Valley on the one hand, and Chester Cathedral, Eton College, Caernarvon Castle and Edinburgh's Princes Street on the other. We also see Cutty Sark and HMS Victory. All fine photos backed by highly informative texts, and, as I'm sure you will agree, all worthy choices, the kind of subjects you would expect. But there are also one or two surprises - the Manchester Ship Canal with factory chimneys smoking in the background, Southampton's King George graving dock and Croydon aerodrome's main passenger terminal designed to cope with 'ever-growing air traffic'. Wells, Glastonbury & Wookey are also pictured. Size 76 x 51mm

Lambert & Butler Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Third Rhodesian Series 1930 Third Rhodesian Series 1930 25 - Lambert & Butler’s 25 Third Rhodesian Series issued in 1930, reflects attitudes representative of those times describing grown men as ‘boys’ displaying Negroid characteristics of long skull etc., and saying which tribe is “the most civilized”. The series begins with a picture of the then prime minister Howard Unwin and continues with a variety of themes such as a native family, building a hut, dug-outs on the Zambesi, pounding corn, baby elephants and so on before ending with Warkie Colliery where natives housed in compounds mined a million tons of coal annually. Card no. 7 is particularly scathing of the locals “steeped in superstition”, “hideously cruel” and of “revolting customs” which the “Authorities must take great care to prevent”. The set completes a trio by Lambert & Butler and follows The Rhodesian Series (1928) and Fauna of Rhodesia (1929). Size 68 x 36mm

Phillips Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards This Mechanised Age 1st Series This Surface is Adhesive 1936 This Mechanised Age 1st Series This Surface is Adhesive 1936 50 - When originally reviewed in our magazine back in 1936 these were described as Quite an outstanding issue ad is certain to be enormously popular”. Every aspect of machinery of the age is exemplified from mechanized shovels to amphibian tanks and all are shown in colour pictures with informative backs which are also adhesive. You get a real sense of the progress being made in all areas including a coal drilling machine, autogiro, Queen Bee which was the first robot plane, petrol production from coal, Battersea Power Station, the Boulder Dam in America which was only opened in 1935, the Post Office railway, cranes, torpedos, the record-breaking ‘Blue Bird’ car, dental X-ray equipment, the Mersey Tunnel which only opened in 1934 and an ice-cream packing machine. The set was also produced without an adhesive back and a second series was issued. Fascinating stuff with cards size 67 x 36mm.

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

But we also see sights from further a field such as ice-bound Niagara Falls, a skating cocktail waiter at St. Moritz, building a snowman in the Australian Alps and various winter sports being enjoyed around the world, forty-eight pictures in all, under the title Winter Scenes.
