recent arrival
A stylised Cadburys / Bournville Ltd reward card depicting the River Avon and the principal towns through which it flows from source through Chippenham, Bradford on Avon, Bath and Bristol. Included are artists impressions of Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Mouth of Avon & Dock and the Source of the Avon. There is also a small inset map showing the position of the Avon in England. Considerable detail appears on the back of the reward card giving facts about the river and it's geography. It mentions the Cabot brothers who sailed from Bristol in 1497 to discover the Labrador Coast, and the trade with the West Indies which has "always been a very important part of its shipping". A very attractive item of cartographic ephemera.
