German line got introduced in 1888 by YENIDZE, American line in 1956 by R.J. REYNOLDS (was the first filter-tipped menthol cigarette)

see also Pianissimo and Reyno

The picture on the right shows a postcard from 1910 with the famous YENIDZE factory at Dresden. YENIDZE got founded in 1886 by Hugo Zietz and named after a village at Turkey's tobacco growing district Xanthi. It's major brands were SALEM ALEIKUM (later just SALEM) and MOHAMMED. In 1924 the company got bought by REEMTSMA. In 1953 the tobacco mosque at Dresden (finished in 1909) got expropriated by the Russian occupation forces and later on destroyed.
