Big Alarm
   General Candy Corp, Chicago - 1930

Notes: Cards are cut-outs from candy packages, unnumbered and measuring 
about 2-5/8" x 5". Type 1 shows the caption "Candy and Prize" while Type 2 
features a poem. I catalog these with "vehicles" because the cartoonish illustra-
tions all show fire trucks. American Card Catalog reference is R191. Scans are 
posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.
