Vintage Ad Series: Smoking is Believing!

Its been awhile since I've run a mini series, so I thought I'd get back in the swing of it. So here I introduce: Vintage Ads, with today's installment, "Smoking is Believing". It is amazing to look back at how naive we were, as a nation about smoking. Of course big tobacco companies wanted everyone to believe how great smoking was, and were quite effective at it. Check out the copy of this ad: "During the summer season of extra smoking-begin enjoying the cigarette of extra smokes! Everyone can afford the coolness, the true mildness, the ripe, delicate taste and fragrance of smoking pleasure at its best. More smoking for your money." Did they really say "season of extra smoking? What the heck is that about anyway!
