Antique thermometer Salem cigarettes sign from the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company, the second largest tobacco manufacturer in the US. R.J. Reynolds was a son of a Virginia tobacco farmer who sold his shares of his father's company to start his own tobacco company. He ventured to the nearest town with a railroad connection, Winston-Salem. By the 1890s his company produced several million pounds of tobacco a year. RJ Reynolds tobacco brands include Camel, Kool, Winston, and Salem among others. Introduced in 1956, Salem cigarettes were sold as the first filter-tipped menthol cigarette. Most menthol cigarettes at the time were created using traditional mainstream menthol blends, but Salem cigarettes were unique in using an Asian Menthol blend. Salem (along with Winston cigarettes) are named after the Reynolds headquarters in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
