In 2019, for the first time in a few years, I added a few vintage packets to my collection. I have had the front of a Beechwood packet for some time but I have now managed to get a complete one. Autograph, from the 1920s, is quite rare and I have not come across Guildsman or Conquest before. I have had blue Tenner packs before but not a green one. 

I found the 'live' JEAN pack at a flea market in Cadiz. The WEEK-END tin came from an antique centre in Yorkshire. The CRAVEN "A" tin has been added to the collection seen on the 2017 page.

Other tobacco related items acquired in 2019 were two ashtrays; three branded lighters (the Camel one came from the Cadiz flea market); Rothmans pen & penknife and a Gold Flake mileage calculator.

In an antique centre I found this BLACK CAT stamp album produced by Carreras in 1907
