84. Philippine CIGARETTE ADVERTISEMENTS from the mid 1940s - 1960s


The worlds of advertising and cigarette smoking have been intertwined for as long as we can remember. In the first half of the 20th century, tobacco companies were major contributors to the advertising industry, and many magazines and newspapers were sponsored by these companies.

As the 1970s dawned, things were beginning to change. During the mid-70s, people became aware of the health hazards of cigarette smoking and the government required tobacco packaging to carry health warnings. 

These cigarette advertisements from the 1940s, 1950s & 1960s were a reminder of the past when smoking was still cool and refreshing.

The following advertisements are from the collection of Arch. Alex Villaflor, while the cigarette wrappers are from my collection.
