Delmar Pool Room In Rear

above from the Delmar Library facebook page
Delmar had had a number of pool halls but the advertised as being in the back is perhaps the one that was in the movie theater, the men are unknown.

Eisenlohr's Cinco Cigars was a popular cheap cigar of the 1930s.  It was among the best selling 5 cent cigars in America.  It is said that after smoking a Cinco cigar, Vice President Tom Marshall made the statement, “What this country needs is a good five cent cigar.”

Our area had local cigar producers but by far Pennsylvania lead the cigar makers having at one time over 4,000 cigar factories in the state.  The Cinco was made in Pennsylvania. Lancaster County, PA has a rich history in tobacco and cigars. The origin of "stogie" comes from Lancaster county, home of the legendary Conestoga wagon from the 1800s. The wagon masters smoked long strong smelling cigars. The cigars became known as "stogies."
