I was given this old Chesterfield advertising poster by one of my home health patients yesterday. We were talking about old signs and stuff and he left the room and came back with two of these posters and gave me one of them. Sorry for the glare in the photos. I will be putting this under glass in a frame. A little research shows that this is somewhere between 1947 and 1953? Arthur Godfrey and Perry Como were both used in Chesterfield ads back then

    Cool ad, the best one, if you can find it, is the one that has the doctor smoking on it. I think the tag line read something like, "More doctors choose Chesterfield".

    Ironic:
    "In 1959, Godfrey began suffering chest pains. Closer examination by physicians revealed a mass in his chest that could possibly have been lung cancer".
    "Surgeons discovered cancer in one lung that spread to his aorta. One lung was removed. Yet, despite the disease's discouragingly high mortality in that era, it became clear after radiation treatments that Godfrey had beaten the substantial odds against him."
    "Emphysema, resulting from the radiation treatments for Godfrey's cancer, became a problem in the early 1980s. He died of the condition in New York City on March 16, 1983."
