Benson & Hedges

 

In the late 1970s, Benson & Hedges' cigarettes were advertised in a series of posters and cinema films which featured the gold pack in various surreal juxtapositions and transformations, devoid of words and people.

And I used to enthusiastically smoke 'em too..

This scene is very reminiscent
blackdog: You bad lad. Thankfully it was never a vice of mine.
Incredible how this caught the sunlight Mike, good capture. Bath City had a player, some years ago, called Hedges. His nickname was...yes, you got it, Benson.
blackdog: I think the building was wrapped for renovation work. Funny how nicknames come about - so glad to escape mine when I left school only to get a worse one when I started work!

a fascinating, atmospheric image!
blackdog: I think the building was wrapped with polythene for renovation work, and that caught the low evening sun for a few minutes. Thanks Philine.
I must plead guilty as charged along with Chris!! Good timing to be there for this Mike.
blackdog: Tsk tsk! Thanks Brian.
I remember the ads very well Mike. I used to smoke the ruddy things too. Well spotted!
Quite an extraordinary photo, Mike!

We didn't have those ads, but I can use my imagination from this very COLOURful picture grin

The dutch have an expression for a person who smokes a lot (translated) "He smokes like a heretic"
that was some interesting bit of info, Mike. cigarette companies (and a lot of lobbies these days) did get away with a lot
