It says “oddest”…
You may already be aware that a British eccentric did much the same thing, but rather earlier and on a MUCH larger scale - to-wit, the Williamson Tunnels in Liverpool.
I had the singular good fortune to see the very excellent ‘Erland & The Carnival’ play a gig in there 11 years ago - ranks among the best I’ve ever seen, and drummer David Nock gave the best performance of drumming I have ever witnessed, bar-none.
Hobbies like this need to be brought back.

This was posted up previously on the old pics thread I think but what I didn’t realise was the artist M.C. Escher (the original doesn’t have his name along the top)
The Surgeon General’s warning wasn’t added to American cigarette packaging until 1969, so that’s been added to the image. Otherwise, that’s a great poster.
I wonder if they used the image in 1969 then despite it being from 1917 as you say it is a great poster.
When you look online, some reproduction posters include the warning and some don’t. I get the feeling it was added a long time ago for a touch of irony.
Could well be right - a pity.
