Cigar Labels!

The romance and elegance of sidesaddle was used in a lot of Victorian Era print ads. I just found it interesting that one of the products that used that image was for Cigar labels... something that back then was NOT marketed for women! Any who... Enjoy these antique creative works of art!
















Hey - wait just a dag blasted minute!!! What is that in her mouth???!!!

lol wasnt it portugal?? back then where it was okay for the "women of her day" to fire one up? Or is that from a spaghetti western i saw lol?

Personally, I would be getting sick on the other side of the saddle ;P ...

Maybe these were the women they were to impress with their manly smoking habit?

Go figure!

But I do love all the places you're finding side saddle images!!
