PART TWO OF CADET'S STINGRAY SWEET CIGARETTE CARDS...
Y'know, it's an odd thing, but I associate the 21st century
more with the mid-'60s than I do with the present day. That's
doubtless because I, like many kids of the time, was exposed to
the 21st century through the TV puppet programmes of GERRY
ANDERSON, the pages of TV CENTURY 21, and various
other items of SUPERMARIONATION merchandise.
I don't especially remember having the sweet cigarette cards
by CADET - certainly not the full set of them, though I may've
had a few, but one look at them takes me right back to 1964 and
forward to 2064 at the same time. That's because the images are
so strongly associated in my mind with those times, that even
though I may not have had the cards, it seems that I did.
However, that's neither here nor there - you're here to see
the cards, not read nostalgic nonsense about my childhood.
So feel free - paste your peepers to the pulsating pictures set
before you. The comments section awaits your input.
