[irish cigarette cards of my mom’s county of origin via nypl]

My parents were born on two islands half a world apart. I live on an island somewhere in between. Is it any wonder I have such an affinity for the sea?

  1. I’ve never seen a cigarette card before, I wonder if they used to come in cigarette boxes back in the day, kind of like cracker jack toys?? I love the photographs on them!

  2. i’ve never seen them before either. thought they were pretty cool, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ah this is so neat! I’m from the same part of the world as your parents and am a huge waterbaby too, currently stuck in a landlocked city! I get so antsy here sometimes. I don’t have any orientation without the sea nearby!
