Weetabix Dogs and Pets Working Dogs 1960 Working Dogs 1960 L25 - In the early 1960s cereal manufacturers Weetabix issued a few stereoscopic sets which were designed to be viewed through their 3-D Viewer. This particular set takes a look at working dogs and the backs tell you all about the breed and its role as well a containing an advert for the 3-D Viewer which was available from Weetabix for 1’6. What is nice about this set is that even without the viewer the colour pictures (two per card) are sharp and attractive although obviously when seen through the viewer these take on a superb 3-D quality. Among the dogs featured are herding dogs like the Border Collie or Corgi, popular sporting dogs such as the Springer Spaniel and Labrador Retriever, hunting dogs like Foxhounds and Beagles, guide dogs in harness, show dogs, guard dogs like the Alsatian, the Dalmatian which was formerly a carriage dog, tracking dogs the Bloodhound, Papillons who appear to be performing in a show etc. A fine set with cards size 112 x 45mm.

Lyons Miscellaneous Trade Cards Australia 1959 Australia 1959 48 - The cards in this set were originally given away free with Lyons Tea and it must have been delightful on a cold, wet, winter morning to open a new packet and discover and exotic creature or sunny landscape from a place most people could only dream of going to. The colour pictures include the capital Canberra and national flag as well as city buildings, but then it branches out (excuse the pun!) into the amazing flora and fauna of the region. Some of the world’s most recognised wildlife makes its home in Australia such as the Platypus, Kookaburra, Emu, Kangaroo, Wombat and Koala and they can all be found in this set. The set then shows how Australians live with a look at farming, mining and pearl fishing as well as aspects of Aboriginal life including their art and hunting skills, but the last card shows the country is looking firmly into the future as it pictures the Woomera Rocket Range, which is in the desert 250 miles north-west of Adelaide. There is plenty of information on the numbered backs including many facts which are likely to make you go “well I never knew that!”, for instance did you know that Poinsettias, popular here at Christmas, are practically the city flower of Brisbane, but although they flourish in the region they actually came from Mexico? A lovely look at a fascinating country. Size 68 x 36mm.
