Strathmore Tobacco Aviation & Space British Aircraft 1938 British Aircraft 1938 M25 - This set is from the little-known firm of Strathmore Tobacco Co. Ltd who operated from River Plate House, London EC2. They were associated with Challis & Co and only produced one series, this British Aircraft set. This is interesting because it contains many planes which were soon to undergo the supreme test of their battle-worthiness in action during World War II including fighters such as the Spitfire and Hurricane which gave such distinguished service in the Battle of Britain, bombers such as the Blenheim and Wellington and the trusty carrier-borne Fairey Swordfish as well as a parade of other military and civilian aircraft which represented a vibrant and successful British aero industry. The pictures and text were supplied by the influential “Flight” magazine and plenty of information is given on the numbered backs. A fascinating look at British aircraft on the cusp of war. Cards size 76 x 51mm.

Players Ships & Shipping Shipping (Unissued) c1960 Shipping (Unissued) c1960 50 - The illustrations in this set were reproduced from paintings by Richard Ward a well-known marine artist and include liners, cargo ships and ferries from shipping lines around the world like the ‘Arcadia’, ‘Bergensfjord’, ‘Brazil’, ‘City of Colombo’, ‘Empress of England’, ‘Federico C’, ‘Gripsholm’, the ‘Manxman’ which ferries passengers from the Isle of Man to Liverpool etc., tanker ‘Methane Pioneer’, Russian liner ‘Mikhail Kalinin’, ‘Olympia’, ‘Orsova’, ‘Pendennis Castle’, ‘Prinsesse Margrethe’, Cunard liner the ‘Queen Elizabeth’, ‘Queensland Star’, ‘Rotterdam’, ‘Savannah’ the world’s first nuclear-powered merchant ship, ‘Statendam’ etc. The numbered backs contain plenty of information about the vessels such as the fact that the ’Fort York’ was designed to carry cargo on the St. Lawrence Seaway, but can be converted to an ocean going vessel if needed or that ‘Southern Cross’ made four round-the-world trips a year. Although prepared around 1960 for one reason or another these were never issued with cigarettes. The fine pictures and interesting text on the numbered backs make this an excellent set for any collection with cards size 66 x 36mm.

Raleigh Motoring Raleigh the all Steel Bicycle 1957 Raleigh the all Steel Bicycle 1957 M48 - These cards were originally only available from Raleigh cycle dealers and apparently only so many were available at each dealership so you had to visit a lot of dealers to get a complete set. Forty of the cards feature bicycle models including Model 4 used by Police throughout the country, a Boy’s Space Rider and the Winkie tricycle then five cards look at various parts of the bicycle like the dynamo and the last two cards feature professional cyclists Reg Harris and Cyril Peacock who both, of course, ride Raleigh bikes. Except for the last two cards the pictures have a vivid yellow background with the model or bicycle part labelled on the front and plenty of interesting text on the reverse. These provide a nostalgic look back at bikes from the Fifties and are worth adding to any collection. The cards are size 67 x 53mm.

Lambert & Butler Aviation & Space Aeroplane Markings 1937 Aeroplane Markings 1937 50 - Described as “colour depictions of the distinctive markings of fifty countries illustrated on the plane in correct colours. Very well produced and the first of its kind, making it very desirable to the aviation enthusiast” in our card magazine in April 1937 this was not quite correct as only forty-four countries are represented as some such as the U.S.A and Britain having two or more illustrations. The importance of being able to identify an aircraft’s nationality was particularly important during times of war. For instance in WWI the R.A.F’s roundel had to be adopted in preference to the Union Jack following confusion with the German Iron Cross in poor visibility and even in today’s hi-tech world cases of mistaken identify can cost lives. It may be that the Ministry of Information had a hand in getting this set produced as swift recognition of friend or foe would be essential in the run up to World War II. Anyway, this set clearly displays the wing and rudder markings of aircraft of countries arranged alphabetically from Argentina to Yugoslavia. The texts give useful background information. For instance of the Spanish Air Force we learn that “after the fall of the monarchy in 1931 the central circle of the wing marking and the bottom band of the rudder marking were changed from purple to red., but since the outbreak of the 1936 revolution two opposing air forces have been brought into being, the markings of which undoubtedly vary.”. Card size 68 x 36mm.

Wills (Overseas) Ships & Shipping Lighthouses 1926 Lighthouses 1926 50 - These were originally issued overseas with Wills’ ‘Three Castles’ brand and take a look at lighthouses around the British Isles. Some are well-known like those at Dungeness, Spurn Head, Bishop Rock on the Isles of Scilly, Flamborough Head near Scarborough, Smeaton Tower or Eddystone Lighthouse in Plymouth or Corbiere Lighthouse on Jersey, but no matter where they are they have all at some time or another been built to prevent shipping from disaster. When this set was produced many of these structures were still manned and in use and you have to admire the courage of the lighthouse keepers in their lonely structures buffeted by wind and sea. The lighthouses are pictured in colour on the front and the backs give the history, details of the range of its light and fog warning system. This set was also produced by British American Tobacco and was reprinted in 2000. A fascinating set with cards size 67 x 35mm.

Anglo Confectionery Aviation & Space Space 1967 Space 1967 LT66 - Produced ten years after the space age began with the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957, is Anglo Confectionery’s series of 66 Space, compiled by L .J. Carter, a Fellow of The British Interplanetary Society. As such, the texts are full and authoritative in their descriptions of developments in space exploration to accompany the pictures from NASA and a variety of other sources.Here’s an extract from one of the cards : the tracking station at Robledo is so powerful it could detect the light coming from a Christmas tree bulb 22 million miles away. In a prophetic statement we are told “Pluto marks the outer limit of our Solar System, but who knows, there may be other even more distant worlds still undiscovered lying in the depths of space.” And sure enough, in 2002, Quaoar, half the size of Pluto was discovered, followed in 2003 by Xena, bigger than Pluto – and astronomers believe there could be hundreds of similar ‘planets’ out there. Size 89 x 64mm
