David Cope Ltd. was a turf accountant (posh name for a bookie). The company sent out these birthday cards during the 1950's. I've got information on three of them, but there may be more. Because of the way they were produced, they are often cut down to just the team photo with details on the reverse, which makes them anonymous as there's no information about David Cope Ltd. on this section.
