Notes: Checklist may be incomplete. Unnumbered. This card set shows Mack Sennett Bathing Beauties with an ad for the film "Tommy Atkins in Berlin" on the backs. 12 known according to The British Trade Index, British Trade Reference WES-170. Stars are not identified on the cards, so the checklist below is based on descriptions of the cards.

Date info: There is an ad for this film in the Kinomatograph Weekly magazine from October 23, 1919 that says that this film will open in London on January 26, 1920. The ad was put out by the Western Import Company. I am setting a date of 1920 for this card set as it is likely that it was released to coincide with the release of this film.

Thanks to Richard Minns for help with this checklist.
