Description

The rectangular panel contains text, and each corner shows an illustration: a bull advertising cut plug no. 10 tobacco; a pipe-smoking bulldog advertising toasted no. 3 navy cut; a woman lighting her pipe advertising Cavendish sporting mixture; and a woman harvesting tobacco leaves advertising Riverhead Gold tobacco.

Riverhead Gold tobacco was produced in the Napier factory of the National Tobacco Company from 1923, using tobacco grown at Riverhead, Auckland. However the image of the young woman on this card was published as an advertisement in 1945; see back cover of Stan Lawson production "Let's be happy" at Eph-A-CABOT-Variety-1945.
