The wall-to-wall display of cigarette advertisements creates a cube of colorful snapshots into the past, including a bride posing with a pack of smokes. Many of the ads parallel the women’s liberation movement by portraying cigarettes as “torches of freedom.” The advertisements depict smoking as part of every social experience, from cocktail parties, to sailing, to horseback riding. They often feature blithe phrases as free as the smoke trailing towards the black frames, encouraging women to “believe in yourself” and “be happy – go Lucky.”
