Souvenir Jigsaw of Empire Exhibition 1938

Souvenir Jigsaw of Empire Exhibition 1938

The jigsaw – made by Waddington’s – shows one of the Scotland Pavilions (there were two of these sited opposite each other on Scottish Avenue,) the Tower of Empire, United Kingdom Pavilion and the Canadian Pavilion plus a troop of charging horse.

The box this one came in was a bit tatty but still striking with the lion rampant logo and Tower of Empire.

There is another Waddington’s jigsaw of the Exhibition featuring a closer view of the Tower of Empire with aeroplanes in the sky overhead and this time with a marching band of bagpipers approaching the foreground. I have that in a cupboard somewhere.
