1962 Woodbine Packet (Un-Opened)

It belonged to Emily Francis Pimblett, wife of Hugh Pryce Pimblett

Emily died in February 1962, a month after she was told to give up smoking. She had a very bad chest infection and died of a stroke, one day after she was discharged from hospital. She was 62 years old

Emily's grandson found the cigarette packet in his father's house when he was clearing the house of his father, after his death, in a drawer in his room.
