Come to think of it, you were probably one of Herman Lane's first customers - and the one who talked him into carrying Charatan Pipes in his shop. Cool

Wow. There is one face there that I immediately recognized to be sure. As you can probably discern from my avatar, I am more than just slightly enamored with Mr. Steinbeck. During the course of my undergraduate and graduate studies in English lit, we've become quite well acquainted, though I had never seen a photo of him with his pipe. It would seem you can know a gentleman by the plumes rising from his briar. Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks trifecta. I have this gallery in my garage. I've had soccer moms and plumbers stagger into my garage an stare slack jawed at all these noble figures united only by the pipe. If they're interested I hand out cobs an PA at the end of the tour. LOL.

Boy, these are too easy. Then again, if they're too hard the thread dies prematurely. Hmmmm. OK, let's try this one. Think Adventure.

Think Harrison Ford.

Thanks Kyle! My kids call the garage The Mortuary. On account all 88 pics are of dead pipe smokers. I'm quick to point out most died in their 80s. Happy pipers one and all. That's the thing. Back then folks would pipe all day. No work interruptions cause you can smoke at work. Ten to fifteen bowls a day from my readings. Yet all sturdy chaps. Fit enough to die in the trenches of WWI and fit enough to fight through Normandy all the way to Berlin. The pipe was part & parcel to that experience. Those fortunate to make it back home often lived well into their 80s pipin thru the day. That's the purpose of this thread. To honor and find inspiration on those men. And you all thought it was a board game. Jeeze.

That appears to be Raymond Chandler. One of my favorite noir mystery writers. I highly recommend Farewell, My Lovely for those interested.

I just found this thread. Way cool! Cool

I recognized Tom Crean right away, but I have an unfair advantage, having read nearly every book about Shackleton's 1914 Endurance expedition. It's one of the most amazing stories of all time. What a shame that most of Frank Hurley's photos were lost. Crying or Very sad

So, if I understand the rules, I get to post one now, right? Here's one...and this guy most definitely was NOT a hero. In fact, he was a lying sleaze bag, vastly admired in his own time, but since then has become notorious by anyone who knows anything about history. (HINT: A famous pipe mixture is associated with this jerk.)

p.s. I didn't see Trifecta13's post before I posted this.
