    I am sharing with you a collection of images from vintage Prince Albert tobacco magazine ads (1905-1950s) that I have collected for your viewing enjoyment.

    Can you imagine an advertisement today showing kids giving their fathers tobacco for Christmas or Father's Day? Oh, the horror!

    Enjoy.

    The good old days, as they say, when I was sittin' on my Dad's lap while he smoked both pipes and cigarettes.

    We’ll never see ads like those again. It’s a shame too.

    Wow, thanks! I like the old advertising and have been collecting it (images of it, that is) off the 'net. You just gave me an idea for how to use it.
    Print a bunch of them and put the stack in a properly sized frame. When you get tired of looking at one, remove the stack and pick a different one and put the stack back in the frame. No need to figure out where to store the others, they can't get lost.

    Got my vote. I love the stuff.

    These are great, and naive. Who reads through four paragraphs of advertising, in our Enlightened(tm) times?

    I'm gathering from Google that a "Jimmy Pipe" is some sort of anti-nicotine pipe. Is that correct?

    In the sixth ad starting from the back it says a packet of PA is enough for 50 pipefuls or 70 roll your own cigarettes. I don't get it...isn't a pipe like 2-3 grams and a cigarette 1g tops? If the packet lasts for 50 pipefuls then it should do at least 100 cigarettes.
