Finding Family

One woman's obsession with family history.

I have always hated smoking so in creating this post I would like to stress that I am in no way glorifying or encouraging the act.  Everything (including cigarettes) has a history and despite the fact that I dislike the habit, the advertising of cigarettes between the 1900’s and the 1950’s fascinates me.  The ads were printed during a time where smoking was not known to have adverse affects to our health and thus slogans are drastically flawed in comparison to the knowledge we have today.

"Your troubles will pass in smoke."

"The Australian Cricket team in England state that they smoke only "Army Club" Cigarettes."

"You will be able to enjoy as many cigarettes as you want - and preserve your health."

"...made specially to prevent sore throats..."

"...for your throat's sake..."

"I enjoy them best of all."
