Smoking manners

Never hold the cigarette between your teeth or at the side of your mouth.  Oh, and if you happen to be a woman with a “pretty proboscis”, don’t blow smoke through those beautiful nostrils of yours.  In 1933, advertising in the Australian Women’s Weekly chastised the inhospitable host who did not offer cigarettes to their guests.

    These are priceless Lynn. A good outlet for your delightfully quirky sense of humour.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying the posts Illana. I’m having fun with it and also enjoying sharing the treasures buried in the Trove search engine. Lynn
