Oh, the glamour!

Weekend / 30th January 1974

A dying breed?

Woman's Weekly / 4th April 1969

I remember smokers’ toothpaste being a commonly advertised product when I was a child, but it seems to have been eclipsed by general tooth-whitening products nowadays. This is quite likely down to smoking being in decline in the UK, and, with the series ‘Mad Men’ reminding us that a hearty cough used to be the normal start to the day for many adults in the Western world, I thought this was a timely ad. However, it seems like we’ve exported this pleasure to developing countries such as China and India. Well done us.
