Container List

Series 4: Smokarol tobacco

Scope and Contents note

Contains images of Smokarol brand tobacco, which is sold wrapped in a roll of paper. The tobacco is seen in pipes, in cigarette rolling paper, and in its wrapper. It is also shown next to different brands, perhaps to show its superiority. These photographs are staged in a way reminiscent of still life paintings, and seem to have been taken for advertising purposes.
