New Orleans Cigar Factory Scene in 1913


Greetings, history heroes of Clear Havanas. In 1913, New Orleans had 22 cigar factories with a cigar roller workforce of over 3,000. The weekly salary was between $15 & $20. Women were employed in most factories. This picture depicts a New Orleans cigar factory back then. Source: Louisiana State Museum.

Until the next post, siempre fumando,
Habana Port
