A Moment in Monrovia History: Mandella Smoking Accessories

A postcard advertisement for Mandella Smoking Accessories, a business located at 140 W Maple. The back of the card says, "PEBBLES design ashtrays and accessories: encrusted tiles of fused glass rimming bent-glass ashtrays, boxes and lighters. Spaces between tiles hold cigarette. (Back of card here.) Not exactly my style ... even if I did smoke. From the Kim Anderson collection. See full details here.
