This is very interesting to me. First of all I love the color and the graphics on the box. It actually is a box flattened out. Very small size, but then it only held 10 cigarettes. On the back in Madeline's handwriting is "Irish cigarettes, King". No idea what King means. I don't believe she ever smoked, but then again she was in her 50's when I met her. I'm sure she saved this because it reminded her of an event or a person. When I googled "Gold Flake cigarettes" I learned that this box is pre-1945. I also found a few glamorous advertisements of woman smoking these cigarettes. And I learned that they are the most popular brand today in India.
This is all so fascinating to me, learning about each of the hundreds of items that she saved. I could very well spend the rest of my life learning about it all.
