Lyons Issues

 

What was Issued for Tea Cards?


J. Lyons and Company was known for their Tea and also their Lyons Maid Ice Cream card issues. 

Although primarily an issuer in England, two sets were issued with pride in Canada. 

44 series were issued from Lyons. Four of the releases had two versions, three with a descriptive back and a non-descriptive back, one with standard back and with special red print message.  And one with rocks in it's boxes!

Here's what I believe to be a comprehensive list of all of the series and when they were issued. If you have a different feeling, please contact me and we'll square it up.
