Talked to the person from whom that batch of prints came ... It seems that the family was once a printing concern, doing all kinds of packaging, etc., and they have piles of 'dead stock' left over from jobs done many years ago.

He said this one is a printed wrapper for a cigarette package ...

Interesting to hear this - that even back in 1905, they would put a picture of a nurse on the front of the package ... presumably to give the impression that their products were healthy ...
