"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.
