By the way, our images show a recent trade card discovery – these were issued by local Cotswolds retailer “Dunns Boots”, which was situated at the corner of Parsons Street, Cornhill, in Banbury.
We now know of five cards, all of which show cricketing scenes, and which appear below. Click on any card to see it enlarged. However, five being an odd number, we have to wonder if more cards were issued, perhaps even ones showing different sports? And we are intrigued by the wording “Branches in Chief Towns”, which could mean there are cards with different town names on the backs. That`s what makes collecting cards such fun!
So if there are any similar cards in YOUR collection please get in touch….
And many thanks to Mr. P. Marks for allowing us to feature these wonderful cards
