About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Dad and Grandma

Dad and Grandma

Grandma was Miss Toronto 1923. She later became a hand model. I'm told my dad, Jerry, was the Philip Morris call boy in Canada. I have three photos of him in his uniform and hat, but they look like proofs. He has performed his "call" a million times over the years. Has anyone ever seen Jerry as the Philip Morris call boy?

Philp Morris

As far as I know US cigarettes would not be widely available here in Canada so I doubt that there ever was a "Canadian" Philip Morris call boy as there would be no call for advertising.

Grandma
