5 Cents Yellow Cab Tobacco Sticker (TL9)
I LOVE Yellow Cab because I grew up in New York and have such fond memories of those happy yellow cars – they were gigantic with little extra fold down jump seats in the back. It was actually Abraham Lincoln who inadvertently created the spectacular industry of cigar boxes and labels. He decided that the best way to raise money was to impose luxury taxes on items like cigars. Naturally the cigar industry thwarted that tax process, dodging it endlessly by continuing with the customary process of shipping cigars in barrels of 2,500. The tax inspectors were worthless at counting such massive numbers, and, as the government dodged and weaved, cigar makers did the same. Then Lincoln decided to end the problem by requiring all cigars to be packaged in lots of 25, 50, 100, or 250, and as a result, the cigar box industry was created. There are lots of reasons to love Lincoln – I’m delighted he created this artwork with his need for taxes.
