Re-Fuelling a Spaceship

This image comes from the New York Public Library's Digital Collections, which recently released a large number of newly digitized images. The image above, titled "Re-fuelling a Spaceship" comes from the collection of George Arents and the Arents Cigarette Cards. Little images like this were printed on hard cards and added to packaging for cigarettes in the not-too-distant past; they were called cigarette cards. Interesting to think that cigarette manufacturers thought to include images of space exploration in packages of cigarettes.
