Many years ago.....

..when I was a young man a cigarette company launched a very good advertising campaign. When I spotted this young lady sitting enjoying a break from work listening to her music and smoking her e-cigarette I plucked up courage and asked for a picture.



I mention the ad was quite slick and was seen in cinemas etc.
The campaign failed because of its copy:

You are never alone with a Strand

Re: Many years ago.....

Barrie, what's going on with your thread, it generates inappropriate content?

Edit: I quit smoking 25 yrs ago, not long before the criminal, drug pushing tobacco companies added some nasty stuff to make it more addictive.
Fortunately, due to strong government anti smoking legislation requiring all cigarette packets to display images of lung cancer, etc, as well as
piling on excise tax that puts the price of the average packet of cigarettes at around $40 (22 quid Sterling), see prices.
Fortunately the result has been that we now have one of the worlds lowest smoking rates and the incidence of lung cancer has dropped dramatically.

Hi Mark -

Perhaps another street pic taken today is more in keeping.
