Much like baseball cards, cigarette cards were issued by tobacco manufacturers in China during the 1920s~1950s, to promote cigarette brands. Subject matters ranged from beautiful women, Western curios, Peking opera, etc. One favorite theme was the “360 trades”, which is an expression used to mean all trades. This particular cigarette card depicts a hand puppet show staged in a street corner. Puppeteers travel with their stage and puppets from street to street ,village to village, announcing each performance by beating on a gong.
