Dancing Girl

This wonderful public domain advertisement photo is from the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. The subject of this cigarette ad is a young woman belly dancing, with a pack of cigarettes in one hand and a lit cigarette in the other. She is poses as though in the midst of a belly dancing routine. This image was originally copyrighted by the American Tobacco Co. It might therefore be assumed that the cigarette pack is from one of their brands.

This advertisement was published prior to 1923 and is therefore in the public domain.
