Wills Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Do You Know 2nd Series 1924 Do You Know 2nd Series 1924 50 - This set answers all sorts of questions such as which animals live the longest? (the giant land tortoise by the way!), why apples go brown when cut, where the world’s oldest buildings are, why a camel has a hump, why a cock is used on church weather-vanes, how flies walk upside-down etc. The colourful pictures on the front admirably illustrate the subject whilst the backs provide all the necessary explanation. Some questions make sense, such as which is the most beautiful building in the world? (the Taj Mahal in case you were wondering), but you have to wonder who would ask why the horse straightens its fore-legs first and the cow its hind-legs when rising? A fine set for any collection. Size 68 x 36mm

Mitchell Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Empire Exhibition Scotland 1938 Empire Exhibition Scotland 1938 25 - In 1938 Glasgow hosted the Empire Exhibition in Scotland, and, fittingly, the local tobacco firm, Stephen Mitchell & Son, celebrated the event with a series of 25 cigarette cards. The exhibition, staged at Moss Park, featured national pavilions, an amusement park, a lake with 100-foot high fountains, and an observation tower 300-feet tall with lifts to whisk visitors to the top. Some idea of the grand scale can be gained from the fact that six 300-foot wide entrances each with sixteen turnstiles were needed “so that the vast crowds which throng the Exhibition daily can be cleared speedily”. The card backs proudly describe the facilities – including the Press Club where newsmen could relax in the exclusive billiard room, card room, lounge and restaurant, and maybe even use one of the many typewriters or the array of telephones. The City of Glasgow pavilion was one of the largest and we are informed that “when the Exhibition is over, the pavilion will be retained as a permanent centre for the sports park which will be laid out there.” Size 68 x 36mm

Millhoff Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards England Historic and Picturesque 2nd Series 1928 England Historic and Picturesque 2nd Series 1928 L25 - For those coming to this country and indeed for those of us who already live here, there is no better introduction to, or reminder of, the nation’s historic inheritance than the pictures in Millhoff’s L25 England Historic & Picturesque 2nd Series dating from 1928,. The unnamed artist has produced really exceptional illustrations from the Forth Bridge and Edinburgh Castle down to Canterbury, Rye and Exeter, via Gretna Green, Chester, Cambridge, Eton College and a superb picture of the Houses of Parliament looming grey against a winter sky and viewed from across the river all within an embossed border. Exquisite! The descriptive backs are highly informative. Millhoff can be rightly proud of this issue. Size 78 x 61mm

Lea Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Famous Views 1936 Famous Views 1936 M48 - 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 Tournament 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. So the title is 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 standard size in both glossy and matt finishes. These cards are size 76 x 51mm. This was also issued in a standard size (68 x 36mm).

Drapkin Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Girls of Many Lands 1929 Girls of Many Lands 1929 M50 - Drapkin or Major Drapkin & Co. were founded in London in 1898 and issued cards from 1912 to 1934, but by 1929 when this set was issued they were a branch of the United Kingdom Tobacco Co. or so it says on the card backs. This distinctive set contains colourful, almost art-deco head and shoulders pictures of young women in national costume, set against a black background and casts the net wide with a higher proportion of non-European subjects than is often the case in such sets. The backs are numbered and arranged alphabetically from Afghanistan to Wales with descriptions of the national dress of each. Odd inclusions are the Australian card which pictures a lady of European heritage with a scarf who is described as making her own clothes and being a “splendid pal” and the Canadian card which says “the women have plenty of time for outside interests”! In case you were wondering the English girl wears a beret style hat and striped top and is described as “noted for her love of sport.. and a keen lover of animals”. An interesting set with cards size 77 x 53mm

Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Gran Pop by Lawson Wood 1934 Gran Pop by Lawson Wood 1934 50 - 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 work people make good cigarettes with care, pride and conscience under the most hygienic manufacturing conditions”. Size 70 x 41mm. This was also produced in a larger format size 80 x 63mm.

Bucktrout (Guernsey) Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Inventors Series 1924 Inventors Series 1924 20 - Visitors to Guernsey in the Channel Islands may be familiar with the firm of Bucktrout & Co whose premises in St. Peter Port is a mecca for wine buffs, but before the war they also made their own brands of cigarettes in association with the Guernsey Tobacco Company, an offshoot of British American Tobacco. This set is among several series issued in the 1920s and was basically the same as R & J Hill’s 1907 series of Inventors and Their Inventions, using the same colour pictures and descriptive text, but with “Bucktrout & Co. Ltd, manufacturers of all the famous Guernsey-made cigarettes” on the backs together with “Keep this card. The number on it may prove of advantage to you”. This was a reference to numerals over-printed on some cards in connection with a prize scheme. Among the worthies in this set are Pierre Curie (radium), Samuel Morse (electric telegraph), Santos Dumont (airship), Humphrey Davy (safety lamp), Thomas Edison (phonograph), Robert Stephenson (engineer), Hiram Maxim (maxim gun), George Stephenson (first locomotive) and Guglielmo Marconi (wireless telegraph), but no women! If such a series were compiled today we wonder how many of these pioneers would be included, but this is a fascinating set backed by plenty of information and well worth adding to any collection. Cards size 68 x 38mm.

Mitchell Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Our Empire 1937 Our Empire 1937 50 - Produced at the height of Britain’s imperial might, when Britannia ruled the waves and much of the globe was coloured red showing the extent of the “Empire on which the sun never sets”, the subjects are much more diverse than the series title would have us believe. Malta, Gibraltar, Suez, the Victoria Falls, etc., are pictured as are the King & Queen, the Imperial State Crown, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Taj Mahal. But also included are HMS Hood, Tilbury Docks, Empire Flying-Boats, policemen in the Sudan and Kenya, a diamond mine, the remote South Atlantic island of South Georgia, John Buchan author of “The Thirty-Nine Steps”, Baden Powell among the Canadian Indians, the liner “Strathmore” and the Canadian memorial on Vimy Ridge.

Anstie Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Sectional Series Clifton Suspension Bridge 1938 Sectional Series Clifton Suspension Bridge 1938 10 - This is a lovely sectional series of colour drawings that form one large picture of the beautiful Clifton Suspension Bridge which spans the River Avon in Bristol. This bridge was based on original designs by master engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel (as amended by William Henry Barlow and John Hawkshaw) and was opened in 1864. The iconic structure links Clifton in Bristol to Leigh Woods in Somerset and contains a toll bridge which raises money for its maintenance. The bridge is 245 feet above high-water level and is used by 4 million vehicles a year. The backs give details about the bridge and we are told that “when the picture has been completely formed the sections being gummed at back may be easily mounted or fixed on a piece of stiff paper or cardboard” – not something we would recommend now! The card backs also have the trade mark of E & W Anstie Litd who’s tobacco factory in Devizes we are told has been ‘established over 200 years’. A nice set with cards size 67 x 36mm.

Lloyd Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Tricks and Puzzles 1935 Tricks and Puzzles 1935 25 - This set of tricks and puzzles is a puzzle in itself as the new issues editor reviewing these for our magazine 1938 pointed out when he commented that it was probably intended for export as he couldn’t find it was ever issued in this country. If it was intended for export however, it seems strange the card backs say “it is hoped to run several big prize picture puzzle competitions for smokers of ‘Blue Lagoon’ and ‘Bondman’ cigarettes”. The mystery doesn’t stop there as these date from 1935 but were not reviewed until 1938 and bear the “Richard Lloyd & Sons, Clerkenwell Road, London EC1” address which might imply a date prior to 1932 when Lloyds became part of Copes. The cards themselves picture black and white puzzles with instructions on the front and explanations on the reverse. These include a trick with burning matches, finding a marked shilling, the counting squares puzzle and the jar in a bottle trick. A fascinating set with cards size 68 x 36mm
