The question “Do you have Prince Albert in a Can?” has been the basis for practical jokes since the tobacco product hit the market in 1907. “Prince Albert” tobacco was produced by R.J. Reynolds Company and was their 2nd highest money maker in the 1930s.
So, to answer the question. . .YES, we do have Prince Albert in a can. And, no, we are not letting him out. Come by the Shelby County Museum & Archives and visit Prince Albert and all his friends. We’re open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. We’d love to see you.
