EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage print captures a piece of history, showcasing the iconic Players Navy Cut Cigarettes and Tobacco factory in Radford, Nottingham. Taken from an aerial perspective, the image reveals the grand scale of this bustling tobacco production facility that employed over 4,500 individuals during its heyday. The rectangular counter card features this remarkable photograph alongside bold text that proudly declares "SMOKE // PLAYERs NAVY CUT // Tobacco & Cigarettes". The card also includes a small white label with the code "CAT59" and a handwritten note indicating the year as "1925". On the reverse side of the card, remnants of a support are visible along with additional handwritten notes reading "C128" and a label from Mardons - specialists in window novelties, embossed showcards, varnishing services, gelatiners & frame making based in Bristol and London. This image offers viewers a glimpse into Nottingham's industrial past while highlighting John Player and Sons' significant contribution to both local employment and tobacco manufacturing. As we admire this historical artifact today, it serves as a reminder of how advertising played an integral role in promoting products like Navy Cut Tobacco and Cigarettes to consumers across Nottingham City.
