We are lucky to have a variety of advertising materials for this series thanks to the research of Bob Thomas and Mick McNeill who have provided the following scans. These article/adverts, from a variety of British newspapers*, are a great piece of social history and demonstrate the huge difference in the way that smoking is regarded nowadays to how it was back in the 1920s: “Cool and sweet in smoking”!

And, there’s even a Huddersfield Town specific one in there. Bliss … 😉

Feel free to comment if you wish.
