About this work


Paper cigarette packet wrapping (probably from the 1930s). The front shows awell-groomed looking young man in a white suit, cigarette in mouth, riding a bicycle against orange clouds and a red sky. It appears to be promoting cigarette smoking as a healthy activity by association with the cycling.
