19 September - Archaeology - Sweet Cigarette Card

This morning's star find at Holy Trinity Church Minchinhampton is another cigarette card, this time squarely aimed at children.
This Barratt & Co card from 1955 is from a pack of 'Mickey's Sweet Cigarettes' featuring Tinker Bell from Disney's Peter Pan, number 32 of a series of 35. You'd have to 'smoke' a lot of sweet cigarettes to get the full set...
