Dell's Confectionery Works Ltd., London - DEL-050/DEB-1 Footballer & Cricketer Pictures


DEL-050/DEB-1 Footballer & Cricketer Pictures
Dell's Confectionery Works Ltd., London
7 known (3 Football)

Information on this set was requested by Mark Edwards on the Forum on the Cartophilic Society of Great Britain's new website Card World. Vernon Young kindly supplied the photo. I decided to ask permission to include the information on this blog, in the hope of trying to discover a little more about this collection. It's not known when these were issued, it was originally presumed to be pre-World War I, but they look more like 1930's sketches to me.
