Age of Power and Wonder

Share

Browsing the Digital Gallery today, I came across this interesting set of cigarette cards. And since I don't think there is anyone who doesn't love space, science, retrofuturism, invisibility and dogs, I thought I'd share a few of them here.

Apparently I wasn't the first to "discover" them though! Interesting to see the images each blogger chose to highlight.
