Around the turn of the last century tobacco manufacturers began including collectible cards in their packages. Gallaher’s Cigarettes printed a special series of 100 cards that included useful and helpful tips for everyday situations and problems. Some are still useful today while others are obsolete. Here are a few examples:
HOW TO MAKE CORKS FIT
HOW TO SEPARATE GLASS TUMBLERS
HOW TO STOP A RUNAWAY HORSE
The entire 100 card collection is part of the New York Public Library’s George Arents Collection and was recently digitized.
