Smoke gets in your eyes

History of Sorts

Children from the past.

I never smoked, really only because I did not see the fascination of spending an enormous amount of money to see something go up in smoke.

However most of my family were or still are smokers and I do feel sorry for smokers. I do think they get a bad press. Yes, smoking is bad for you but what chance did the smokers have with so many people making it look cool.

If I was a smoker I don’t think I could have resisted the temptation. Here are just some historical pictures of people,mostly famous, who made smoking look cool.

Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’, with a tame Raven shown helping her indulge a bad habit.
