In the 1910s, Gallaher Ltd of Belfast & London and Ogden's Branch of the Imperial Tobacco Co printed "How-To" series, with clever hints for both everyday and emergency situations. From steaming out a splinter to stopping a mad dog, these cigarette cards told you the smart way to handle many of life's problems.

Nowadays any single one of the "how to" cards listed on that page would result in a dozen lawsuits within a month after hitting the printers.

Pretty much! Sad
