A friend of mine was recently in Germany for his brother’s wedding and brought back a copy of a magazine called “hobby” (the magazine of technology) from 1961 which had this ad.

It says “My friends smoke Kansas” and “Fine American leaf tobacco.”

I got a laugh out of the three cowboys riding a bronco while smoking pipes.

Love the ad. Can't see that flying in today's uber pc environment though. Some of those pictured look downright young!


Cheers,

Love that ad. Germans have a thing for the old west. At least they used to. I visited a German family decades ago and when I went into their daughters room she had a lifesize poster of "Little Joe" from the series Bonanza on her wall. I'll never forget that.
