The Art of Packaging: Christmas Smokes

I guess saying, “things were different then” is a little bit of an understatement. Everybody smoked, and they smoked a lot. So much so that you could actually mail a carton of cigarettes with a pre-printed Christmas message. All the big stars pushed their brand – even ex-president Ronald Reagan smoked Chesterfields.
