Here’s a Sir Walter Raleigh Pipe Tobacco Ad from Popular Mechanics April 1959 edition.
Smells Grand! Smokes Sweet! Packs Right! Can’t Bite!
That sounds good to me. I’m ready to smoke some right now, and when I do I will be nice and relaxed, smoking slowly, enjoying the flavor and the time to relax.
You can also see how the chicks dig him, which is totally true. My pipe is definitely a chick magnet … or is it my two-seater convertible? I’m not sure, but just don’t mix the two together. The wind will not make for a good smoking experience.
I love seeing these old ads. It makes me wish it was 1959 right now, but with personal computers and the Internet.
