The Sun article “‘Not just eye candy’: Cigar Dolls available to entertain party guests” brought back fond memories. In 1930, when I was 7 years old, my mother and father had a cigar factory in the basement of our house in East Los Angeles (Boyle Heights).

My mother — dressed in her unglamorous house dress — would strip the tobacco and my father would roll cigars at his bench. Quite a different picture from the one in your article about Cigar Dolls. I guess that’s progress. I enjoyed the article.
