A while back, I asked readers to send in photos of their unusual family collections. Margaret from LA, who worked at a small grocery store in the early 80s, sent me her stash of cigarette buying permission notes. Back then, you could get away with selling cigarettes to minors as long as the smoker parents put it in writing.
This one has a grocery list and phone number, in case you want to verify the existence of Ms. Higgins.
This is my favorite one. Totally spaced on the cigs!
Thank you Margaret!
