1916 Wills Mining trading cards — distributed in the brand’s cigarette products — highlight the methods and locations of mining operations around the world.

The front of each card features vibrant artwork of various mining operations such as gold, diamond, or turquoise and the reverse offers an explanation of the technique or machinery on display. In many instances the back of the card will also reveal the location of the particular mine from the front of the card.

Wills Tobacco was a British company but their cards are readily available on US collectibles marketplaces.
