General view of a Victorian Tobacconist (reconstruction). Tobacconists sold blends on new tobacco, snuff, cigarettes and smoking acessories. The wooden figures, on the left, advertised what was on sale: the Highlander, that Scotish snuff was sold; the Blackamoor, that tobacco from the Caribbean was available.
1837 AD - 1901 AD
