Much like baseball cards, cigarette cards were issued by tobacco manufacturers in China during the
1920s~1950s to promote cigarette brands. Subject matters ranged from beautiful women, Western curios, Peking opera, etc.One favorite theme was the “360 trades”, which is an expression used to mean all trades. This particular cigarette card depicts a farmer pedaling a waterwheel. On a dry day, farmers used the waterwheel to transfer water from the river to the nearby rice paddies.
