cigarettes tripled their sales and became legitimate competitors to leading
brands. One of the earlier straight-Turkish tobacco cigarettes, Mogul was
introduced in 1892 by the New York-based Greek tobacconist Soterios Anargyros.
After the dissolution of the Cigarette Trust, P. Lorillard took over the
production of Mogul cigarettes. Though likely made of a Turkish blend, Moguls
were advertised as "Egyptian Cigarettes." Many of the Mogul ads
presented upper-crust models in Western apparel, positioning the cigarette as a
luxury good, while some of the ads incorporated Egyptian motifs or models
dressed in Middle Eastern garb. Source: Stanford School of Medicine
