More Rainbow Bread trading cards
here. First 5 cards are from the A Great American
series in 1976. There were 50 cards in the series. Here’s #1 Abigal Adams, #9 Davy Crockett, #27 Lewis & Clark Expedition, #36 William Penn, #48 Eli Whitney. A few interesting facts about Whitney. He began using interchangeable parts long before Henry Ford. Also, I’ve heard that he invented to cotton gin to alleviate the suffering of slaves, but the cotton gin ended up increasing the workload as plantation owners tried to get even more cotton to market. Another example of unintended consequences. Christian-Hansen is given the copyright credit, is that the artist?
The last three are from the Bicentennial Know Your American Presidents series (1976 of course), # 16 Abraham Lincoln, #18 Ulysses S Grant and #20 James A. Garfield. Copyright is given to Bel-Art Advertising Inc.
