British Public School & Universities On Cigarette Cards

   Many people consider the happiest days of their lives to be when they were at school or university. It is hardly surprising that social networking websites that tap into school-day nostalgia are some of the most visited web-venues. This may explain why there is quite a strong market for school/university memorabilia on eBay.
 
A number of sets of cigarette cards were issued on British Public Schools and Universities from the 1900s-1930s. I've listed a small selection below. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
