latest ashtrays from my collection

Feeling flush a month or so ago, I bought two lots of old ashtrays online.

A hotel, the restaurant of which I used to work in, opened up a water park in the back, and rather than calling it what it is - a WATER PARK - they call it a 'resort.'

Now THIS is ashtray advertising at its finest.
