An Idea Incubates

You have to wonder who thought that promotional line up.
As opposed to what, dead ones?

They'd Rather Switch Than Quit

Helmar cigarettes (looming in the sky) were originally named Ramleh. The company decided to reverse the spelling of the name to avoid confusion with the competing brand Ramly cigarettes.

Infant Incubator

The exhibit was operated by the inventor of the infant incubator until the 1940s. See this.
