A vintage advertisement for "Egyptian Deities" cigarettes. Egyptian Deities cigarettes were popular during the Egyptian cigarette industry boom which lasted from the 1880's through the First World War (circa 1918).

Egyptian tobacco was not known for its quality, and so Turkish tobacco was replaced Internationally for Virginia tobacco.

I believe Egyptian Deities slogan was "The Utmost in Cigarettes" and a typical pack ran approximately $.30.

This great advertisement was taken in the early 1900's.
