Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues Trees in Britain blue back 1966 Trees in Britain blue back 1966 50 - What we love about Brooke Bond sets, particularly those issued in the Sixties, is the amount of thought and research put into them – they were designed to be both attractive and educational and they don’t disappoint. This set looks at British trees, but as well as picturing the full-grown tree in all its glory you also get another card showing the leaves, seeds, fruit or nuts of that tree and the backs give loads of fascinating information about the species. For instance we learn that the Larch was introduced to Britain from Europe and the houses of Venice in Italy are supported on piles of Larch. Also included are the Scots Pine, the Stone Pine which is rare in Britain, the Juniper which produces berries often used to flavour gin, the long living Yew, Common Lime, the Sycamore with its winged seedpods, Horse Chestnut, the native Holly, the rare Spindle Tree, Gean or Wild Cherry which produces glorious white blossoms, Hawthorn who’s haws are popular with birds in winter, Rowan, Crab Apple, London Plane, the Elm which was once common, but was depleted due to disease, Silver Birch, Hornbeam, the familiar Hazel, Beech, Sweet Chestnut which produces chestnuts that can be roasted and eaten, Holm, Common Oak our most well-known tree, the Strawberry Tree and Ash one of the most common trees. An album was original available to house these cards which could be obtained from grocers at 6d. These blue back cards are size 68 x 36mm and the set was re-issued in 1973 with a black back and re-issue album.

Brooke Bond Advert Cards Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues Farewell to Picture Cards 1999 Farewell to Picture Cards 1999 LT3 - When Brooke Bond stopped issuing cards they said goodbye to collectors with a final series of three “Farewell to Picture Cards” on which Kevin Tipps is shown, suitcases in hand, against three different backgrounds. The text on the back is the same on each in essence thanking people for returning the survey cards and marking the end of a “long tradition of picture cards” with the promise of “some exciting new ideas” These represent the end of an era, but we still have plenty of Brooke Bond sets to remind us of the pleasure they have given over their 45 years of issues. Size 89 x 63mm.

Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues British Costume blue back 1967 British Costume blue back 1967 50 - These illustrate male and female dress from 1050 to the swinging Sixties and include formal court wear, day wear and even a Scottish kilt and Welsh country dress. This is a fine historical set with plenty of information on the reverse. For instance we learn that dresses for ladies in the 1920s flattered the flat chested and men had a new soft felt hat. These colourful cards also demonstrate perfectly the excessive lengths to which being fashionable can take you – this is especially apparent in the 1880s when in addition to the incredibly tight corset an extreme bustle was attached on the back which we are told had to support the weight of the heavily-trimmed overdress. Such a dress must have severely restricted movement and it is no wonder that the Rational Dress Society was founded in that same period to promote more comfortable clothing. This blue text back set was issued in 1967 and an album was originally available to house these cards, but the set was also re-issued by Brooke Bond in 1973 with black text with a re-issue album. These provide a real guide to clothing over the centuries and the cards are size 68 x 36mm.
