Vintage Cigarette Cases

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new here and this is my first post so hello everyone. I came accross this forum by accident by googling for cocktail recipies- glad I did, there's a lot of good information here. Anyway, I bought a 40's cigarette case off eBay but it's just a little bit (about 7mm) too short to fit regular filter cigarettes in. It's not a big problem as I can just but them in slightly askew but I was wondering, were cigarettes shorter 'back in the day'? Maybe it's something to do with the filters...


Oh, and I smoke red Gauloises blondes, if anyone's interested.

Cheers.

Unfiltered cigarettes were the norm and yes they were shorter.

Roll your own. They'll probably fit.

Most cigarette cases were used to fit unfiltered, non-King size cigarettes that tended to be oval in shape. If you wanted to filter the smoke then, you would use a cigarette holder with a charcoal filter.
