VINTAGE SNAP CARD GAME - ENGLAND C 1950

£25
(ID: 10740)

This is an English made version of the game of SNAP made around the 1950s. A set of 48 cards - four of each subject.

The subject matter is occupations. From Fisherman, through jockey to Yeoman of the Guard. And guess what? Yes, all men! I believe there is a Yeowoman now. Ah well, those were the days of Man slaving away at the coal-face whist women .......... well, women slaved away at the home-face - children and all.

For some reason one subject is a Golly - not exactly an occupation, more a state of being. Yes, politically incorrect times as well as sexual inequality. So a good piece of social history encompassed in one pack of cards.

Cards in mint condition. Box in excellent condition with all flaps present. Original rule sheet present.
