Trade cards from the "Vehicles of the World" series (N90), issued in a set of 50 cards in 1888. There are two variations within the series. One variation was issued by Duke's Cigarettes to promote the brand. A second variation was released the same year by Goodwin to promote Dogs Head and Old Judge Cigarettes. The only difference is the ad at the bottom of the card versos.
