Grumpy old fart!!!

"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

A poignant reminder – The Sphere – Saturday 21st December 1918

You’ve seen it through!

 

You don’t want to talk about it. You don’t want to think about it. You just want to lean back and feel that the day you’ve been dreaming of since that first August of 19 14 has come at last.

It’s good to be alive. It’s good to be with her. It’s good to sit at home, lazily watching the smoke curl up from your Kenilworth Cigarette, and enjoying the flavour of that wonderful golden tobacco that suits the hour so well.

Peace finds Kenilworth Cigarettes unchanged, in size.

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.

For ———- somewhere in ———-,.Aren’t you going to send him some? His thoughts will be with you when he smokes’ Kenilworth.
