Elizabeth Taliaferro Bunnell Endorses Herbert Tarreytown Cigaettes

This post is inspired by a chapter in  former editor Charles E. Bunnell (Charlie to his friends) recently compiled Bonnells & Bunnells of Note (And a few Burnells & Burrells for Good Measure). The complete work is available on Internet Archive at this link: Charlie Bunnell's Bonnells & Bunnells of Note.

The fine print in this old advertisement reads: “Miss Elizabeth Taliaferro Bunnell, lovely young socialite of Richmond, VA., at The Greenbrier. Discriminating in her choice of cigarettes, Miss Bunnell says: ‘I smoke Herbert Tareyton because the cork tip adds so much to fine-tasting tobacco.’”

Elizabeth is 361053, the daughter of Frederick Hartsock and Louise Brander (Taliaferro) Bunnell. Her lineage is: William1, Nathaniel2, Isaac3, Abraham4, Abraham5, John6, Jonathan7, Samuel8, Franklin9, Frederick10, Elizabeth11

Some of us old-timers might remember the Tarreytown ad campaign featuring all kinds of folks with black eyes saying, "I'd rather fight than switch."
