Undated: Donated by Andrew Emsley, these cigarette cards are part of a set about dogs.

The cards were included in cigarette packets by the tobacco companies, it was once a popular pastime to collect a full set which were then put into an album available from the cigarette manufacturers.

The topics were varied from aircraft to wildflowers and are now collectors item, often seen out of the albums and framed.
