Pictorial Playing Cards manufactured for F. W. Woolworth & Co, 1950s-60s
Alf Cooke's range of De Luxe Pictorial Fabric Finish Playing Cards, in their bright orange boxes, were manufactured specially for F. W. Woolworth & Co. during the 1950s and 1960s. The designs were a continuation from the earlier New Bond series plus additional new designs reflecting the new era marked by the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. In some cases the Universal Playing Card Co Ace of Spades is found, and in other cases the new Alf Cooke Limited Ace is found along with the newer Joker designs.
