A pair of vintage Camel tire repair kits.
The taller is Tubeless Tire Plug Repair Kit and I believe it is complete. Circa 1960s.
The smaller is an empty box of Vulcanizing Patches. It originally came with 10 patches. I used something like that for my bike tires in the long long ago. The lid is used to roughen the tube before applying the patch. Circa 1940s but I am not sure about that.
OK the big question has to do with Camel Cigarettes. This has nothing to do with Camel Cigarettes and is made by a completely different company.
The next big question is how did they get away with using the Camel artwork.
The answer is that the camel is facing the opposite direction.
