Sunday Vintage Pipe Ad, 1934: Granger Tobacco
Like other Granger ads of this era, pipe smoking is portrayed as something that is enjoyed by the entire family. See other examples here and here.
I've never tried Granger, and I don't plan to. Since it's an old-fashioned burley with some unidentified "flavor" added, odds are I wouldn't like it. This is still a great example of magazines ads from a bygone era, the like of which will never be seen again.
If anyone ever sees me holding a pipe like that, you have my permission to slap me.
