Ephemera ~ Tobacciana


Click to embiggen - and see all the details. I love all these old ads. There is a signature on this one (unlike most), but I can't read it. The number 38 follows it. Can we assume that it means 1938? Or was it #38 of the prints? This kitten calls to mind the one I posted climbing on me!


So that's where the firefly's light comes from! LOL. CLick to enlarge and see the bug's faces.


There are nice colors in this one. If she's a really good tennis player, I doubt she smokes. Right?



I am working this week, through Sunday. Don't expect to see me commenting......I'll be back Monday.

Love these ads. The signature looks like 'V. Conroy' to me.

Don't work too hard!!!!!

A delight! The dress in the tennis one looks twenties. I specially like the top one - like Paris in the 19c. I guess 38 it wouldn't be the date.

Riiight- tennis playing and smoking go hand-in-hand. :)
