The Thompson, Moore & Company issued a number of sets during the late 19th century--most notably their sets of playing cards issued in packages of tobacco. The N459 Hard-A-Port Rope Knots set is a tough set and rarely found. The cards picture sailors in various poses on the front of the card in various situations where tying ropes would be necessary for sailors. Each card outlines a different type of knot and what the knot looks like as well as a card title for the scene pictured. The backs of the cards advertise for Hard-A-Port brand and have a little poem or sea "shanty" at the top of the card pertinent to the front pictured graphic.

This lot of (2) cards from the N459 Thompson & Moore Rope Knots set includes the subjects: "Burial at Sea" and "At the Wheel" both of which are in VG to VGEX condition and very clean front and back.
