OXO Trading Cards - Australia

"La Compagnie Liebig" or Leibig's Exract of Meat Company is the originator of OXO boullion cubes. Around 1872 the company hired famous artists and began to make Trading Card sets with a theme and stories or historical information on the back. I have seen some of children, operas, and other countries.  

This is one of a set depicting scenes and information on Australia, written in French. 

I found these ones interesting because they give a little bit of history on each card.
There were usually 6 card in a set. They are popular collectibles and I found some for Scene d'Italia and Scenes de la vie Hollandaise.
