1924 Cavenders Homeland Series Overview

1924 Cavenders Homeland Series Golf.jpgThis is a set from the UK that features pictures of various events in England. It is similar to the later Homeland Events cards printed in 1927 and later, 1932, packaged with Wills and Lambert & Butler products.

In all, there are actually several different Cavenders Homeland Series sets. There are two different sizes – one is a smaller card and one is larger measuring nearly 2″ x 3″. In addition, some are real black and white photos while others are colorized pictures of the same image. As if that wasn’t enough, Cavenders issued these with more than one product brand. For example, some backs are found with only the Cavenders name and others are found with other brand names, such as Army Club Cigarettes.

Like the Homeland Events sets, the Cavenders issues also include 54 cards and utilize the same type of design. Real images were used and backs included the Cavanders name, the maker of this issue. Cavanders was a London and Glasgow tobacco company established in 1775, as indicated on the cards.

Similar to the Homeland Events sets, most of these cards are non-sports cards. However, a handful of sports issues are featured as there is one card for tennis and golf, as well as a few others, such as soccer.

One distinctive feature of this series is that, instead of a description on the back of the sport or event, a brief poem or song snippet is printed instead.
