The picture posted by Billy Teabag of 'May Wettern' does not look like any of Will's Cigarette cards. It does, however, look exactly like the photo (as David Elliott indicates) in my 1929 Rose Annual.

How interesting. Billy’s illustration has “Will’s Cigarettes” printed at the top and Billy has commented before that she has noted the cards were mostly true to the actual roses. I can only suggest that they took the 1929 illustration and doctored it up to include the bud, and the third leaf on the right for their 1936 card. There is also the orange pink staining at top top right, which when I enlarge it, seems to be hiding some writing/printing.

Hm-m-m. You're right. I wonder if that would be considered a kind of plagiarism. Not that it matters, and any copyright has no doubt long expired anyway.
