As I’m finishing this third book, I’ve been looking in the newspapers archives a lot, and I was a little surprised to find how cigarettes were marketed as far back as the 1910s. It was pretty targeted. So far I’ve identified three distinct types:
- Cigarettes that appeal to the Smart Set
- Cigarettes that appeal to the Everyman (or Everywoman)
- Cigarettes that replace food or equate to food
I give you cigarettes for the Smart Set!
Choose the cigarette you’d buy in the poll at the end of this post!
