In 1925, Spinet House of London and Sunripe Cigarettes produced a series of 50 train cards commemorating 100 years of trains. The tobacco cards include 50 individual photos documenting the centenary evolution of trains as well as dignitaries of the time. The cards are numbered with descriptions on the backs of the cards. This collection advertises Sunripe’s “extra size” cigarettes that were sold with or without cork tips.
A collection of 43 of the 50 vintage cards is for sale here.
