Vintage Pipe Ads

I found a pretty cool vintage advertisement search engine (via Seth Godin).  A search for pipes has some amazing results.  Some of my favorites so far: Half and Half, Radiator Pipe, Honey Pipe??.  I’m guessing you either are not allowed to or its no longer profitable to advertise pipes, so this is a glimpse at Pipe heyday.

    If you belong to the Pipes and Tobacco “Foundations” web board then one of the paybacks is the ability to download the entire set of “Pipe Lovers Magazine”, 1945-1950 (roughly). After WWII, it was difficult to get briar and pipe importation into the states was just resuming. However, the point of my post is that the advertisements are great! I never saw so many metallic/briar combined pipes and so many “radiator” and “smoke cooling devices”. Some of the pipes you can see today at pipe shows. It is well worth the $$ to join pipes and tobacco foundations,or at least get a trial membership, and download the material that is available.
