old advertising

We had lunch at Cracker Barrel today. There was an old cigarette advertisement on the wall next to our table. I ferget the exact wording but it stated something like this - Phillip Morris ..... renown physicians know that our cigarettes are good for your nose and throat. Could you imagine anyone stating anything remotely close to that today?

No and that must've been one old ad! I used to smoke, but I don't remember reading anything like that.

I also used to smoke but never heard or saw anything before claiming for it to be healthy

While most of the stuff hanging on Cracker Barrel's walls are old signs or artifacts, this appeared to be a page out of a magazine - it was in a frame under glass. I didn't notice any date on it.

Just do a Google image search for old cigarette ads. Yep, all sorts of stuff saying "if you want a healthy baby, stay calm by smoking xxx brand" and more doctors smoke xxx brand. Ads with babies talking about smoking, ads with every big star of the 50's and 60's it seems.

I buy and read 50's and 60's Popular Mechanics and such at flea markets and thrift stores and that ad is exactly what you would expect to see in them.
