Bar One Cigarettes - The cake-eating-and-having of televisions.

Financial advice now, from your friends at J. Wix and Sons, Ltd, makers of Bar One cigarettes! Learn about affording stuff the only educational way - with a comic strip!

See? You can afford anything if you switch to a cheaper cigarette, and buy it with the savings. Here's a link to help us understand British money in 1952. If the price difference is too small, like, say, "10/-" (which means "10 shillings"). A shilling was 1/20 of a pound. So, Bar One cigarettes save Jim and Margaret half a pound per week. If, for some reason, that wasn't enough to buy a TV, then they simply weren't smoking enough! Smoke more to save more! Got it.

Anyway, here's Jim looking happy. Of course he's happy. He's smoking a Bar One! He's also happy because he has a transparent background. Why not print him out, roll him up, and smoke him? That's how you save REAL money on cigarettes! You're welcome!
