Three-year-old boy smoking a cigar, 1928

Three year-old Robert Quigley smoking a cigar, Washington DC, 30th Aug 1928. Quigley apparently started smoking when, as a one year-old on his father’s knee, he grabbed his father’s pipe and tried smoking it.

Thing is one would ask, Why would the parents be held accountable? until the 60s smoking was approved, even recommended by doctors.

They simply didn’t know then what they know now.

What else do we know now that the baby boomers didn’t know?

And being clairvoyant, what do you suspect we know now that will change in future?
