They were white when I started smoking them in 1958. Worst ongoing mistake I ever made!! Fortunately I quit in time so that there have been no long term problems.

Terrific find and capture!! Hard to believe that back them smoking was considered glamorous.

I remember the white packs, but I never smoked these (remember Virginia Slims)?? I, too, quit quite a few years ago, thank goodness. Love the title! #10907358
