For Christmas I bought my mum and dad a copy of the Harrods catalogue from 1895. Harrods is an exclusive department store in London, I don't know what the American equivalent would be? Macy's?
Anyway, it is a massive book with loads of different departments and of course a brilliant tobacco/pipes section. I tried to photograph the pages but didn't have much luck. There is however a digital version online that you can view and I've provided a link at the bottom. The tobacco section is 'Number. 3 department."

Here's a few pictures:

And here's the link to the catalogue History: Victorian shopping : Harrod's catalogue 1895: Contents - https://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi-bin/History/History-idx?type=header&id=History.VictorianShopping&isize=M&pview=hide
This is a historical treasure trove.
