Wall Charts

 

What's a Wall Chart?

In the first series of tea cards, a colorful wall chart was offered for .25. After that, Red Rose thought it would be a good idea to do a little promotion in schools. Wall charts were offered to schools for educational purposes. Typically, a school wrote to Red Rose requesting the educational material and they responded by mailing the school a poster along with a set or sets of cards, and album, and sometimes other objects.

 


Exploring the OceansWhat is on the Wall Charts?

All kinds of interesting facts, lots of pictures of cards, a picture of the album and typically a few other pictures, sometimes blow ups from other cards, sometimes new art work or facts relating to the topic. There is always a blurb about how the posters are to be used. It varies a bit over time. Here are the different wordings I have seen as far as the purpose of the charts. I omitted the addresses. If there are two addresses listed, then it is Canada and the US. One address is just Canada.

What Series had Wall Charts?

That is a good question. I don't really know the answer. I can tell you which wall charts I have either seen with my own eyes or have seen a scan of. Having said this, if you own something that is not on the list, please email me with a scan and I'll give you credit and post it on this page. I am not aware of any US / Canadian variations. As far as I know, requests from either country resulted in the same wall chart. This seems even more plausible when you read the purpose blurbs above.

A Couple Of Rare Finds 

In 2020 a great surprise was found, thanks to Terry Gomes. He discover a couple of "missing" charts that I nor anyone else reading this page have run across before.  In addition, with the series 16 wall chart, we have a new chart purpose, type "F".

These images have been reduced to thumbnails to save you time in loading the page. Click each one to see the actual images. Once the large one has been viewed, click "Back" on your browser to return to this page.

It's pretty sweet to see these beauties but now you gotta ask me to expand this section and start putting up all the wall charts we know about, not just the two latest. That's quite a few but we're up for it, right?   If it's something you'd like to see, speak up. Otherwise I'll be off doing something else.



1 - Thanks to Terry Gomes for sharing scans of Series 13 and Series 16 wall charts. They are rare as hen's teeth...
