I have a different set of 52 playing cards, 2 jokers and 2 blank cards (spares I guess, in case you loose cards) in their oringinal box. The gold writing on the box is rather faded but it says,
Tasmanian Souvenir Playing Cards.

They appear to be Spurling photographs to me, although his name is not mentioned. Many of the photographs are the same as Spurling's postcards.

Have scaned the King of spades and 3 of clubs.
