Old Newspaper Finds: “For Digestion’s Sake…Smoke Camels!”

Whenever I’m looking for articles about my ancestors, I can’t help but skim the ads at the same time.

This ad is from Mason City, IA in 1936.

Wow, have times changed.:)

    Oh my — absolutely hilarious. My dad started smoking when he was 9. I’m not sure what brand he started with, but he was a Camels man as long as I knew him. He died of lung cancer at the ripe age of 80, so he was lucky to have dodged that bullet for so long. Must have been all those good digestive qualities he was getting from his smokes.ReplyCancel

    Wow! Makes me wonder what ads I’m buying into that’ll later be proved unhealthy! Does that mean yogurt is the new camel? 😉ReplyCancel
