Brief Description: Huntley & Palmers picture card featuring camels in Egypt, part of a series showing scenes from different countries
Subject Date: Late nineteenth century

Full Description: This series of small advertisements illustrates the ways that Huntley & Palmers' biscuits reached the four corners of the globe. The idea of the trade card as a brightly coloured collectable picture came from America in the nineteenth century. In Britain, trade cards had been usually black and white, despite the arrival of multicoloured cards in Europe during the 1880s.
