ENGLISH COUNTIES PLAYING CARDS

This set was made sometime during the 1940s, so post-WW2, and is based on Old Maid, except it used the counties and towns of England.















I'm pretty sure I've scanned the entire set, so you could even print it out and play!















These scans are actual size (as many cards as I could fit onto the scanner) and 300dpi resolution, unretouched, so you can crop and edit to your heart's content!















ADDENDUM - I don't have the rules for this game. Sorry (thought I had...)










I think they make great backgrounds!

  9. Oh, I have a perfect project for these, my heavy blocks made out of plaster, I'll be back to copy, need ink. :(

  10. It's Murphy's Law - you always run out of ink when there's something you really really want to print! I'm intrigued about these blocks - I hope you'll let me know when you do them. Enquiring minds etc....they sound fabulous.
