Does anyone else remember when newspapers used to post pictures like these?

The first two show the same girl, Patzy Grimmett. The second one shows Sonia Mae Everson. I love the comment on Sonias pic - Pediatrician says they won't hurt as long as she enjoys them !!!

This kind of thing was not uncommon 40-50 years ago. And the subjects did not die at young ages, either, in spite of what people would believe today. Maybe such early exposure gave the kids a built-in defense or tolerance or something?

    I do share your in love of smoking cigarettes but I do not agree with all of your views of smoking.

    interesting, i wonder if those girls are alive today and whether they still smoke.

    if your kid needed a light for her stogie would you give her one? i can't get over these parents! these kids seem to have their parents wrapped around their pinkies.

    The picture links didn't work, but I think that giving babies (and children alike) puffs of cigarettes is sick and wrong. BUT, back in those days, smoking was the norm... They weren't aware of the dangers of it. I am not really sure of your question, but those are my two cents. :)
