Midhurst Museum will this month be showcasing a slightly more off-beat, unusual display.
Founding member of the museum, Dave Rudwick, said: “Once again we have come up with a display which will cause the ‘I remember those’ moments.
“In the past everyone had a family member who smoked, and although now looked on as anti-social, it formed a huge part of everyone’s lives.
“Advertising sponsored all sorts of sports and events and children encouraged dad to smoke more so they could collect the cards that were in the packs.”
Some of the more unusual items include a cigarette packet used for a dolls’ house and tins still sealed with tinfoil to be used at sea, so if the ship sank, contents would not be damaged.
Cigar-cutters and cigarette holders among other things make for a varied display.
