The Tobacconists 1930 by Yampimon


Small (16.4" x 23.1")

Available to buy on…

A 1930s shop from Oldbury UK which was occupied in succession by two independent tobacconists has been recreated as a branch of Alfred Preedy and Sons, the chain of tobacconists founded in Dudley UK in 1868.
Between 1914 and 1938 annual tobacco consumption per head of the UK population almost doubled. This was the age of the cigarette, which were sold in small enough quantities to make them affordable by most people. ‘Woodbine’, ‘Weights’, ‘Park Drive’ and the other cheap brands could be obtained in penny packets of five.
Back in those days, it was believed that smoking was good for you.
