Oh, how times have changed......

I brought home several hundred vintage magazine ads from Paris and found the following two Regie Francaise ads to be interesting.  They are from an extra large-size magazine named "L'Illustration" published in the 1930s in Paris.

Cigarette and cigar advertising is no longer "glamorous", but the girl in the 1935 illustration really just screams 1930s Art Deco glamour!  I really love the graphics on this ad.  The other one from 1934 features two children offering cigarettes and cigars as GIFTS.  Things have DEFINITELY changed!   But, both of these ads can now just be appreciated for the loveliness of their artwork.
