Antique Cigarette Card

I found this old cigarette card on Etsy and just fell in love. I don't know why I am drawn to old medical genre illustrations but I hope that you will enjoy them too. Here is an illustration of compression of an artery. I love that when I smell the card, I can still smell the tobacco that it came with. I don't smoke but something about that smell reminds me of my childhood.
Have a fantastic weekend and I will be back on Monday with some more images!
