Although the 1900's gave us a lot in the way of technological advances, from vacuum cleaners to the very first computers, things have move on considerably in todays world and therefore you'd think the life-advice given out at the time would also be irrelevant however these brilliant "how to do it" cards found in cigarette boxes that are more than 100 years old prove otherwise.

Collected and then digitised by The New York Public Library the cards were once a collectable item put inside cigarette packs that included photos of celebrities and advertisements until UK tobacco company Gallaher decided to use the opportunity to put together a series of clever life hacks and tips to deal with just about every situation imaginable, from the sometimes obscene to the more practical and clever. Checkout some of the best below.
