Old Stocks tobacco, 1904

Player's Old Stocks tobacco rectangular counter card. The edge has been cut to resemble a carved picture frame and the card is heavily embossed. In the centre is a miniature of a building on a street corner. It is called "YE OLD STOCKS" and is probably an inn. In one of the windows are two pipes with crossed stems, and what may be a box of cigarettes or cigars and a tin of tobacco. Opposite to the inn is a man in a red jacket sitting in the stocks. At the centre top of the card is a small label with the typed note "No. 41". There is a hanging loop to the top. The text on the rest of the card reads " "OLD STOCKS" // 1OZ PACKET 7D 4OZ TIN 2/3 // 1OZ [ditto marks] 1/1 1/2 8 OZ [ditto marks] 4.6 // SMOKING MIXTURE // JOHN PLAYER & SONS, Castle Tobacco Factory, NOTTINGHAM // BRANCH OF // THE IMPERIAL TOBACCO CO // (of Great Britain & Ireland) // LIMITED".
