    I Love Old Cigarette Ads

    Just got a book for Christmas called Smoke Signals. It is a history of cigarette advertising. It's pretty good but not very complete. It has a couple of old Lucky Strike ads, my favorite. I am looking for the ads with Steve McQueen in them. Very hot!!! When taxes were first...

    Retro Adds Are Swell!

    They take you back to a cut and dry simpler place in time. It always makes me smile to see one.  They're Jolly good Ol 'Boy!
