Above: Jaques' Counties of England card game, 4th Series (Southern Counties), c.1910. The set also contains The Rules. The factual information printed on each card was updated to keep up with progress and new industrial developments. For example, the Isle of Wight card in earlier editions read: "ISLE OF WIGHT - Osborne - One of the residences of HM Queen - Exports of pipeclay & fine sand from this island - Population 66,165". This edition we can date with accuracy to between 1904 and 1920 based upon the information given for Osborne House being used as a Naval College - it was only used as such between these dates.
