Swiss Scenic Ace Souvenir Cards, c.1850

Souvenir playing cards with Scenic Aces made by Johannes Müller in around 1850. This is the time when Müller was expanding his range of products to include railway tickets to meet the growing demand from the railways being built, which happily coincided with the rise in tourism for which he produced scenic playing cards like these. In time the enterprising Müller widened his playing card range and began developing export trade.
