A truly historic scene of the days when cigarettes were rolled by hand in factories, primarily by women workers. The first American cigarette factory opened in 1864 and at that time, produced almost 20 million cigarettes annually. The Richmond Straight Cut No. 1 was one of the popular brands. A double sheet by John Durkin (1868-1903) in good condition with very nice coloring and the usual center fold. This print is glued down and is published by Harper’s Weekly.
