Mixed Cigg/Cards

Originally Cigarette Cards were used as a practical solution for the soft packaging of cigarette packets and where used as stiffeners to protect the contents. At first the tobacco companies printed adverts on the cards but shortly afterwards changed to lithograph pictures and artwork covering an encyclopaedic variety of subjects to the extent that the cards became known as ‘the working man’s encyclopaedia’.
