The "Selwell Series"

 
The "Selwell Series"

J W Asher's earliest comic cards included one definite F S card in the Drink series followed by two sets in the Selwell Series (Father is a Handy Man and  Mother's Trials).  Then another set, Spring Cleaning, turned up with some cards (with different backs) signed Donadini jr. and others with captions in German. It now seems this was a false lead and it is more likely that the cards were all by Donadini jr. Other Selwell cards were by Will Adams, A L Tuck and Arthur English
