Cigarette trade cards were issued by tobacco manufacturers in the late 1800s and early 1900s to stiffen cigarette packaging and advertise their brands.
Scheduled to run through 2018 at York Castle Museum, the First World War Exhibition, "1914: When the World Changed Forever" opened on 28 June 2014, exactly 100 years after Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, sparking a chain of events leading to war. York Castle Museum was founded in 1938 by Dr John Kirk, a doctor from Pickering, North Yorkshire. The museum houses Kirk's extraordinary collection of social history, reflecting everyday life in the county, including a fullscale Victorian reconstruction of Kirkgate street, a recreated Jacobean dining rooms (1567–1625), a history of children's toys, and exhibits on the First World War through the 1960s. The York Castle Museum is housed in a former debtors' prison (built in 1701–05 using stone from castle ruins) and in an adjoining former women's prison (built 1780–85) in North Yorkshire, England. Originally built by William the Conqueror in 1068, York Castle features a ruined keep now called "Clifford's Tower."
