Kenilworth Cigarettes – The Tatler – 1916

Kenilworth - The Tatler - 16th August 1916

“Shall we find a nice, quiet corner?”

“Let’s tie up in the shade for a bit. You must want a rest. And I can see by the way you’re looking at my Kenilworth that you’d like one of them too.” Kenilworths are the most soothing and seductive cigarettes imaginable.

It isn’t only the flavour of the wonderful golden Virginia that makes a Kenilworth so delightful to smoke. Look how beautifully it is made. Even if you strip the paper off”, a Kenilworth still holds together as a perfect cigarette. And notice how carefully the long, fine tresses of tobacco are laid side by side, so as to secure a “through-current” of air and an even smoke. There’s no other cigarette quite like a Kenilworth. You will find that Kenilworths compare favourably with the most expensive brands you can buy in Bond Street.

I’m not sure whether this is a genuine postcard or a reproduction although it was sold as an original as the back is plain so possibly for the “collector” rather than the eyes of the postie 😉
