The Buena Vista Garden, by Yarddawg

Once upon a time I assume tobacco was grown somewhere within the friendly confines of Buena Vista. There are a few fields still grown within the city limits of Winston-Salem like this one on South Main Street.

Tobacco has played a remarkable and beneficial role in the development of this city, the surrounding area and across North Carolina. The most common type grown in these parts is Flue Cured aka Bright Leaf.

This advertisement copyrighted 1933 was found in a local tobacco warehouse. Find it here unless Esbee's crack legal team deems it either inappropriate or PG-13 according to her August 15th "Huh?" post. Nevertheless the ad says Camel's Costlier Tobaccos Never Get On Your Nerves. But a fellow restaurant patron (sitting in the smoking section) DID NOT agree with this ad when a friend fired up a Camel. The friend was figuratively (G-rated version) asked to walk much more than a mile to satisfy the urge if you know what I mean.

Quoting Forrest Gump, "That's all I have to say about that".

Esbee note: Crack legal team guffawed.
