you’ll find me just around the corner
It’s a small matter where you meet up with Chesterfield. The point is
—get acquainted! You’ll find the change to Chesterfield a real change ... one
which your palate will thank you for! Chesterfield uses choicer and milder
tobaccos—nothing else; and so blends and "cross-blends” them that you get
just what you want in a smoke . . . greater mildness and better taste.
For NINETEEN years, our Research Department has
kept intimate touch with every new development ol Science
that could be applied to the manufacture of cigarettes.
During thir period there has been no development of tested
value' or importance to the smokei which we haw not
incorporated into the making ot Chesterfield cigarettes.
