Vintage Cigarette Ads

Rita Hayworth - Smoking CigaretteAh, remember those good old time, when smoking cigarettes made people feel glamorous and sophisticated.

The time when many an aspiring starlet would smugly pose with a lit cigarette in her hand, blissfully ignorant of the dangers of the smoke swirling around her. Nick Naylor would have found it excruciatingly boring, as the spin doctors of that time did not have to worry about regulations and huge class action lawsuits against the industry.

The Industry was only peddling death, but, in a beautiful and seductive manner.

The Visual telling of Stories site has a huge compilation of cigarette ads and images from that period, when it was almost impossible to look upon cigarettes as harbingers of suffering and pain.

  1. This is clearly not the image that we should promote if we want to help people quit smoking. I mean, the photo clearly sends a positive message because it is a celebrity smoking which are considered role models by a lot of people and secondly because smoking seems to be a pleasant activity with no harmful effects, but we all know that the truth is ugly and smoking can kill you.
