The famous smoke-ring blowing billboard on the north-east corner of State and Randolph streets in Chicago.

The famous Winston smoking billboard on the north-east corner of State & Randolph streets in Chicago. Circa 1967. The billboard was featured in the movie "Take the Money and Run (1969)," where the smoke rings were blown directly into Woody Allen's apartment window.

If I recall correctly, this sign was a steaming cup of coffee advertising a brand of canned coffee before it was the Winston sign.
