A trading card produced by England's
Brooke Bond Tea Company, circa 1978, entitled "No. 40 - Thylacine".
Beginning in the 1950s, packets of Brooke Bond tea included illustrated
tea cards, usually 50 in a series, which were collected by many children.
One of the most famous illustrators of these cards was Charles Tunnicliffe,
the internationally acclaimed bird painter. Most of the initial series
were wildlife-based, including 'British Wild Animals', 'British Wild Flowers',
'African Wild Life', 'Asian Wild Life', and 'Tropical Birds'. The
inclusion of these cards in packets of tea ceased in 1999.
