Snap by Woolley & Co

Woolley & Co produced a large number of games in addition to standard playing cards. ‘Cries of London Snap’ was published by Woolley & Co Ltd in c.1905. A favourite parlour game from the Victorian era, with cheerful figures of street vendors, hawkers and news boys. Woolley & Co's card games were taken over by Roberts Brothers Ltd (the Glevum series) in 1905 when Woolley ceased production. Roberts Brothers were in turn taken over by Chad Valley in 1954.
