Sheet of tobacco wrappers


Sheet of uncut wrappers for Imperial Tobacco Company’s tobacco brands.

“Even after the freeing of slaves in America in 1865, many African Americans continued to work on the tobacco and cotton plantations where they had previously worked as slaves.� This, and the attitude to black people generally, was reflected in the continued use of the image of a black man or woman on British tobacco packaging and advertising until about 1960.”
