Scientific Inventions and Discoveries
R. & J. Hill Tobacco - 1929

Notes:  Cards are approximately 1-3/8" x 2-5/8", and were issued in three
variations: with either full-colour or black and white portraits on card fronts,
descriptive text on card backs; and an oversized colour version.  Hill re-issued
part of the set (20 cards) with plain backs in 1934.  Thanks to Maple Leaf
