Cigarettes from a time gone by. "A collection of quaint cigarette packs, boxes, tins and advertising" We had candy cigarettes in January, now the real thing.

Oh, and I'm glad to see he posted a link to this site also. I first saw this years ago and lost the address. The web design is a bit hinky but the resource is awesome!

I notice the famous Camel pack is in there too.

Interesting post about cigarettes being erased out of history… "Last Cigarette."

In college, I smoked unfiltered Lucky Strikes, which were $.25 a pack at the student union. My roommate brought a pack he got from his father that had the green label shown on this website and dared me to smoke the ancient pack on a bet. They were a bit dry, but the best tasting Luckies I ever had.

Thanks caddis for the link. Lucky for me, I quit 19 years ago.

I think it's right that there appears to be a big pile of shit on the Old Gold pack. I'd always suspected they were using additives.

Frustratingly small pictures, but a classy gallery.

Slight derail: are Lucky Strikes still considered the coolest/best cigs, and are Old Gold still the dominant shitgarettes?
