Chesdale cheese print (1st of 2)

Chesdale cheese print

This print, produced some time in the 1940s or 1950s to advertise the Chesdale Cheese brand, highlights the cheese's convenient properties for the cook and consumer – it doesn't have a rind to remove, which reduces wastage, and the wrapping keeps it from drying out. Its versatility is also demonstrated. Chesdale Cheese was still available in the early 2000s, in pre-sliced, individually wrapped packages.
