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.
