This 100-YR-OLD lifehack as illustrated, is an actual card from a series of 'How-to' cigarette cards published by Gallaher Ltd of Belfast and London and Ogden's Branch of the Imperial Tobacco Co in the 1910s. The first cigarette cards, depicting famous people and trivia among other things, were originally put in cartons to stiffen the packaging in the 1870s.
