“The men who transform fresh pork and beef into the finished Morrell Meat Products are craftsmen just as surely as those who work with wood or metal, only their skill is keyed to standards of fine flavor, expert trimming and cleanliness, instead of to size, design and finish.”
This is a 85 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1935 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
