Day's Tobacco, Tobacco Companies

Added to the Tobacco company collection…


Visit our current auctions of hand-made cards here!

I couldn’t find information about London’s Day’s Tobacco Company, but I did like the advertising sheet shown below. In particular I like the logo, it has that great “hand drawn” feel to it. Its interesting that so many of the English companies used American Western themes.

  1. I think that it is interesting that the Western theme was used overseas to sell cigs, while here at home the main themes were the Orient and other exotic places. Thanks, Bruce, for your comment

  2. A beautiful image — especially for an 84-year-old piece. Love how the traditional six-gun is replaced with a pack of cigarettes. Great twist to an iconic American theme.
