WW2 & Korean War era cigarette advertising for American brands.

Much of this sort of advertising would have been seen in Australia during the time of the American "invasion" 1942/46 and later in American & Australian glossy magazines. Advertisers set out to make both smoking and the war seem glamorous. Of course we know that they were wrong on both counts.
WARNING. Smoking is a health hazard. It has been linked to lung cancer, heart disease and other life threatening problems. This page does NOT support or encourage smoking or the use of tobacco products. It is merely an account of historical facts.
