A third form was the lunchbox tin, so named for its wire handle and frequent reuse by smokers and their children alike to carry their lunch to work or school.

Because the shapes of tobacco tins were relatively standard, the lithographed artwork on the outsides of the tins was just about the only way to differentiate products on a tobacconist’s shelves.

The first people to smoke tobacco in pipes were the Native Americans who lived in the eastern woodlands of North America between 500 BCE and 500 CE.

These early smokers burned indigenous tobacco in clay or stone platform pipes, so named for their flat bases.

This new technique allowed the ink on the litho stone to be passed to a cardboard cylinder (later, rubber would be used) and then offset onto the tin.
