C.W.S. ‘Game of Snap’

The Co-operative Wholesale Society ‘Game of Snap’ features vintage artwork promoting household products of the day, such as cod liver oil and floor polish, manufactured by the C.W.S. Printing Works, Manchester (UK), c.1930s. At least six different C.W.S. Snap games were published during the 1930s and this is probably one of the best. The back design includes the C.W.S. wheatsheaf motif.
