How About All of the Albums from Red Rose

While some cards are marked Canadian and some American, I am only aware of one type of album, usually with a Canadian address on the back. We've got all the covers in here. What if you want to see the real thing? You could check out what Bill has to sell and get some REAL stuff, not just computer images. Now there's a thought....


Series 1 - Songbirds of North America...

This is what the cover of the Songbirds of North America looks like. This is the first series and hence the first album to have come out. This series was unavailable in the US as it was not until series 2 that the US got a shot at the Red Rose tea cards. There are three variations all on the back cover, check it out at Red Rose Album Variations.



Series 2 - Animals of North America...

02album.jpg (798341 bytes)


This is what the cover of the Animals of North America album looks like. This is the first album (and cards of course) available in the US. It's also the first album to have an insert in it. Check out what the insert looks like at Album Inserts. All of the covers that I have seen are very glossy and easily crinkle. To find one in good shape is a challenge.



Series 3 - Wild Flowers of North America...

And how about the cover of the Wild Flowers of North America album. The covers are glossy as well and one in good condition is tough to find. 


Series 4 - Birds of North America...

The Birds of North America album has glossy covers too but they don't seem to damage as easily. Maybe that's just me.  


Series 5 - Dinosaurs...

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


Dinosaurs - Series 5


This is what the cover of the Dinosaurs album looks like. The dinos seem to be the most collectable because of their dual appeal both to the tea card collector and the collector of any dino related items. 


Series 6 - Tropical Birds...

06album.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the Tropical Birds album looks like. The British Brooke Bond counterpart also issued a very similar series with the same name. 


Series 7 - African Animals...

07-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the African Animals album looks like. The African subject matter was used for a couple of series in the British Brooke Bond world. 


Series 8 - Butterflies of North America...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


08-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the Butterflies Of North America album looks like. A beautiful butterfly on each cover. 


Series 9 - Canadian - American Songbirds...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


09-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the Canadian - American Songbirds album looks like. Can you guess that birds are a popular theme with Red Rose?  


Series 10 - Transportation Through The Ages...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


10-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the Transportation Through The Ages album looks like. This was a knock-off of the British Brooke Bond Transport Thru The Ages series. There are more than just a few differences. Check it out! 


Series 11 - Trees of North America...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


11-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the Trees of North America album looks like. Two kinds of Trees on the cover and leaves and seeds on the back. Not as bad as watching paint dry... not really. 


Series 12 - The Space Age...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


12-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of The Space Age album looks like. Yes, it was done in 1969 and its dated, but a lot of it is still valid (except for Pluto) and the drawings are awesome!  


Series 13 - North American Wildlife In Danger...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


13-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the North American Wildlife In Danger album looks like. Got a wicked Bald Eagle on the cover and a couple of cuties on the back. 


Series 14 - Exploring The Oceans...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


14-00.jpg (616904 bytes)


This is what the cover of the Exploring The Oceans album looks like. The cards and album have great artwork with sea creatures and cool underwater equipment. 


Series 15 - Animals and Their Young...

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


Animals and Their Young - Series 15


This is the original Animals & Their Young album cover. It's a great album and there are two versions of cards to collect. The series was re-issued in 1990. The new albums cost $1 instead of .25. The dollar label is shown below. Click it to see a comparison of the new album and cards to the old.

Series 16 - The Arctic...

The Arctic - Series 16


This is what the cover of the Arctic album looks like. For me this series is interesting in that some of the cards could easily fit into other series. Overlaps include Space, Animals of NA, Flowers of NA and Birds of NA. Bill could make a really bad joke and tell you how "cool" the album is but he's not like that.... is he?



Series 17 - Indians Of Canada...  

These images have been reduced to a thumbnail to save you time in loading them. Click the thumbnail to see the actual full size image. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.


Indians Of Canada - Series 17


This is what the cover of the Indians Of Canada album looks like. Sadly, it is the last album for Red Rose. At least for Brooke Bond Red Rose. For me this series has a beautiful look at the natives of North America. Very well done.
