One of my favorite tobacco sets is my 1932 green front “A History of Aviation” (L8-52-A) and 1933 brown front “A History of Aviation” (L8-52-B) 25-card aeroplane card sets. Both in near mint condition.
During 1932 and 1933, Lambert & Butler’s Cigarettes issued two “A History of Aviation” 25-card sets of “aeroplane” cigarette trade cards. Both sets were identical except for the tint of the card fronts and backs. The cards feature a chronology of aviation attempts, flops, milestones, and significant accomplishments from the 1843 Cayley “Aerial Carriage” up to the 1931 Vickers Supermarine Roll-Royce S.6.B. “Schneider Cup” racer. (Side note: The S.6.B. morphed into the Spitfire.)
The following video of the 1932 set is on my “Skytamer Images” YouTube channel. I currently have over 40+ non-sports card sets on YouTube. Check them out.
