1916 Wills Merrie England trading cards showcase the wardrobes and occupations of Old England. Unlike most Wills sets, these cards aren’t numbered individually but the card backs do confirm that there are 40 cards in the set.

The artwork on each card is just a character in full costume and a caption that lists his occupation. The drawings were done by John Hassall and colored for this set.

As far as Wills sets go, this one seems to be a bit obscure and tracking down a high quality set may be difficult.
