Rizla Hand Rolling cigarette paper packets c 1970

Always an odd trade mark, with backward sloping lettering. But it may be perceived as a shop front seen from below and to the right.

The Rizla trade mark is jesting abbreviation of Rice (Paper) and Lacroix , the French inventor, viz RIZ LA + History here The Liquorice paper top left was introduced in 1981.

    Lovely assortment. Are they just the booklets, or do they still have papers inside?

    Always amuses me to see "Made in England" on these packs - I'm sure the guys at the factory in South Wales *loved* seeing that on all their work.

    There's a slightly more up to date history here , age restrictions apply.

    Hi Longun, I don't think you have the right link there.
    No, they are empty, though I have shown a few of the reminder slips "five leaves left" etc which were placed among the folded papers to remind you to buy some more (these were picked up by me as a schoolboy in the late 60s.

    Oops - no idea what mr.Flickr did to my link - it was supposed to be to here ....

    5 leaves left was the name of Nick Drake's first album...
