1930s Kobe Buddha Cigarette Card

My father as a child in the 1930s in common with most boys of that time collected cigarette cards - this particular example was produced by W.D & H.O Wills and was part of it's Wonder of the Past series. Seen below is a photo taken around the same time.

It was built 700 years ago all of welded bronze and stands 49 1\2 feet high with eyes of gold. By paying a fee you can go upstairs to top inside. It was once covered over by a temple which was destroyed by floods.
