Smoking was common in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood in the mid-1970s. When this photo was taken in 1974, tobacco companies were still advertising on TV. Tobacco packages had carried warning labels since 1966. However, the tobacco industry was still fighting a growing body of scientific evidence that smoking had negative health impacts. Over the years, warning labels have changed as more scientific evidence accumulates and as regulatory agencies explore different wording in an attempt to get people to heed the warnings. From 1966 to 1970, the warnings read, “Caution: Cigarette Smoking May be Hazardous to Your Health.” In 1970, the labels were changed to read, “Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined that Cigarette Smoking is Dangerous to Your Health.” That warning lasted until 1985, when it was changed again. Despite the hazards, this man looks like he’s enjoying his cigarillo.
