Oddly, this series began at year’s end 1922 and then went on for a further seven weeks into the New Year. Despite the last card of the set declaring that there would be another card “next week” it’s clear that it wasn’t of a Famous International. The cards are unnumbered and are also devoid of any date information, but Alan Jenkins‘ website has provided the necessary information.
