Thursday Thirteen

The Keystone Antique Tractor Museum in Petersburg, VA, which we visited a few weeks ago, had more than just tractors. They also had a collection of tobacco signs and related paraphernalia, old soda bottles, and tools.

I don't smoke or condone smoking, but the old signs are interesting.








These are old cigarette cartons.


These are old snuff/chewing tobacco cans.

Soda bottle holders.

Old cans of food items.

Old soda bottles.

Old tools.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 511th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.

  1. My mother's first job was at 17. She lied about her age and went to work at the king Edward Cigar Co. rolling cigars and cigarellas by hand. I love looking at little museums like this. You find the coolest stuff. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is a fabulous T13. Thanks for the memories and my favorites are always the old tools. I didn't recognize any of the soda bottles. We got different ones on the West Coast as kids.

  3. I knew this Old Guy once who said that when he was young he smoked Virginias. He called them "Jinnies."
    I quit smoking this past February, still suffer the occasional urge to light up. This triggered one. Fear not, though; I'm done.

  4. I still like the tomato labels better, though those tools certainly caught my eye.

  5. Now it's almost all pharmaceutical drug ads on TV taking the place of cigarettes and beer. I vaguely remember when everything was cans or glass and no plastic. Still, it all looks so nostalgic and harmless now.
