    These are collectible cards (trading cards, if you will) from the Reemtsma tobacco company; they were to be pasted into an album.

    These are from collection/series no. 8 "Deutschland erwacht" [= "Germany awakens"]; more than two dozen different series - most of them not political in nature - were published by this company.

    Such "cigarette cards" - covering subjects ranging from birds to movie stars, from flowers to painters and from uniforms to historical figures - were extremely popular at the time and there were many other companies publishing them.

    For a little more, please see:
