Mike Pryor 028 I started collecting matchboxes and labels in 1966. My aunt and uncle owned a tobacconist shop in Newquay, Cornwall and I ‘worked’ there for them marking and delivering newspapers. This is where I first saw the Old Cornish Mine series of labels which fascinated me, and started a life-long interest in phillumeny. I have developed this web site dedicated to Old Cornish Mines, and this web site dedicated to the Spanish Inserts from 1897-1910 which is my other area of specialism.
