You all deserve a break after my last two lengthy posts. Today I'm sharing a cigarette ad from a 1919 issue of LIFE Magazine that I found inside a book while Michael and I were getting the upstairs ready for Dex's visit (see previous lengthy post...). I know for a fact that my grandmother saved this page from the magazine, and I am sure that she saved it for the Norman Rockwell painting on the reverse side.
But it is the Omar Cigarettes advertisement that I thought you might find more interesting as you relax during the three-day weekend. I wish all you gentlemen settling back in your smoking jackets with the Sunday paper a good holiday. And ladies, with the satisfaction of knowing that those delicious corn cakes and fluffy muffins were thoroughly enjoyed by the family you can claim some time for yourself. Might I suggest getting the hell out of the house and away from that killer OMAROMAR?
