ADVERTISING PLAYING CARDS
|NOTES|| What do you do when the telly breaks down in the middle of the Grove
Family ? Of course, you reach for the playing cards to while away the remainder
of the evening. So, what better way of publicising your television repair

From the style of the illustrated television I'd guess this pack of cards date from the latter half of the 50's. The cards themselves were produced by the well-known games makers Waddingtons and are so old that some of the words appear strange to me .... does anyone know what "Made in England" means ?.
|WHERE FOUND||Bought off Fleabuy for ... er, I forget, but wouldn't have been much.|
