Gallager's cigarette card

Earlier last year, the New York Public Library made a huge number of digitised images freely available. Included were cards like the one above, once sold with packets of cigarettes, that offered all sorts of useful tips.

Some of the advice these inserts dispensed may still be useful today. For instance, even in this age of sliced bread, by warming a bread knife in hot water, you should be able to slice bread like a pro, should you encounter an unsliced loaf.

See the rest of the set, there’s one hundred, I think, and useful tips from another age, here.
