Smoking Hasn’t Been Cool Since… (VIntage Smoking Pictures)

Believe it or not, there was a time when smoking cigarettes was the cool and accepted thing to do socially. Parents encouraged their kids to smoke to help them relax. Thankfully times have changed and the dangers of smoking tobacco is visible across the globe.

There’s something about a child holding a cigarette that is both cute and scary… I can’t stop myself from digging up vintage smoking pictures, trying to dissect a time and place that seems long forgotten – yet still familiar.
