Ringtons Tea Miscellaneous Trade Cards People and Places 1964 People and Places 1964 25 - This colourful little set depicts scenes from around the world so for instance we see a map of Japan with girls in traditional dress or the Islands of Samoa with native dancers. Among the other people and places featured are Masai Warriors of East Africa, South Americans of the Andes Mountains, cowboys in the South of France, Beduins of the Middle East and Eskimos of the Arctic regions. There are some curious inclusions though like the card for India which is a vast country is full of colourful regional differences but is represented only by a Mahout and his elephant. Also considering there is a whole world to choose from why include a man and his coracle from Ireland or a bullock sleigh in Madeira and the card for Salvador does not even feature people just an erupting volcano. That said there is plenty to enjoy about these cards which are backed by interesting facts about the regions featured. This set was also issued by Askeys, Barratt & Co, Browne Bros., Clover Dairies, Gowers & Burgons, Hitchman’s Dairies, Lamberts Tea, Ringtons Ltd and Wilcocks & Wilcocks and these are the same except for the company name on the reverse. The cards are size 65 x 35mm.

Faulkner Military - General Series Police Terms (without Faulkners titled Police Humour) 1899 (reprint 1998) Police Terms (without Faulkners titled Police Humour) 1899 (reprint 1998) 12 - This set was originally produced by W & F Faulkner in 1899 and was reprinted in 1998 without the firm’s name on the cards. The set was also reproduced with the firm’s name on the front in 1989. These are not laugh-out-loud funny, but will raise a wry smile as the colour pictures humorously show another meaning for the words used. For instance the card titled ‘Police Court’ shows a policeman courting a lady, whilst ‘The thin blue line’ depicts a very skinny policeman. The backs are completely blank, but despite this it would make an interesting addition to any collection and is sure to be a hit with any Copper. Cards size 64 x 38mm.

Anonymous Flowers and the Garden Cacti 1965 Cacti 1965 25 - This set contains colour drawings of different types of cacti with guidance on how to grow them, country of origin, details of flowers etc. on the numbered backs. For instance the Selenicereus Glandiflorus is described as the finest of all cacti and named the “Queen of the Night” because the lovely flower opens towards sunset and the Echinofossulo Cactus Crispatus was apparently “fairly recently discovered”. This set was also issued by Amalgamated Tobacco in 1961 and by Lamberts Tea in 1962. It is fascinating how many different varieties of the plant are available and this set certainly does them all justice. Cards size 68 x 36mm.

Ching Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Do You Know 1962 Do You Know 1962 25 - This interesting and colourful set covers the sort of questions that these days we can easily find the answer to online, but in the 1960s, when this was issued, would require a trip to the library such as how a Brazil nut grows, how a grasshopper sings, how a nettle stings, how fast an ostrich can travel or why a billiard cue is bevelled. Comprehensive explanations are given on the card backs. Our favourite has to be ‘Why a horse-shoe is used for luck’ as this has a local connection. Apparently these are considered lucky because legend says that St Dunstan, who was born just down the road, was noted for his skill in shoeing horses and he shoed the devil’s hoof, but this caused the devil so much pain he vowed never to enter a place where a horse-shoe was displayed – so now you know! This set was also produced by B.T. Ltd, Cromwell Stores, Ovaltine, S. Prior and Sweetule Products and was also part of a set of 50 produced by Liam Devlin & Sons – see website for availability. This set is size 68 x 36mm.

All are explained on the numbered backs This set is similar to that issued by Ringtons Tea in 1964. The cards are size 68 x 36mm
