Royal Cigarette Cards 

Written by our history intern

I’m Barbara and I am currently working as an intern at the Harris. My role here revolves around exploring and cataloging the objects contained in diverse archival boxes.

From all the items I have seen up to this point the best were cigarette cards, demonstrating different royal figures and events.

This specific item caught my attention since it reminded me of the play cards I collected as a child and the good memories I have of playing with them along with my childhood friends.
