Stonehenge #50 of 50 Beauty Spots of Britain, Beatall C.W.S Tobacco card
I know little about the Beatall company, I think these were printed and distributed in 1936.
I do know this card represents several periods in the Stonehenge timeline besides when it was published.
While the image on the front of the card illiterate the stones as they were in the 1800's a period of free access, when a hammer could be rented from the local blacksmith allowing the visitor to take a piece of history home with them. The back of the card refers to stones being guarded by a barbwire fence. This fence was not erected until after the first reconstruction project in 1901 when an entrance fee was first instituted.
Back reads: Stonehenge. Though guarded by barbed wire from souvenir hunters, Stonehenge can still conjure up romance, especially at sunrise or sunset.
Antiquarians say that the stone circle is 4,000 years old, but may well go back another 5,000 years to the time when England was a colony of the Lost Continent of Atlantis.
