This isn't an ad about pipes, it's about tilling machines. The front page of the brochure says it all. This is a man's man, the kind who tills the land and smokes a pipe and is the master of all that he tills.

I posted this one at the old site wondering what the heck a "Jimmy Pipe" is. I guess it can be inferred from the context, but it's gotten a little murky with the passage of time. It's dated 1913.

This reminds me of my days in the U.S. Navy. We could still take smoke breaks then. I understand that's frowned on now.

That guy is a Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class, BM3, a Bo'son. I was a Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class, HM2, a Doc, a pecker checker, or, as Mrs. King is always mortified to hear, a penis machinist. Good old Navy talk, like the only thing I did was check guys for venereal disease. I had a much more distinguished career, the way most Bos'ons did even though we also called them "Deck Apes."

I didn't smoke Chesterfields then. I smoked unfiltered Luckies.

Now, a civilian, I smoke a pipe and machine made cigars. That's why I'm here.
I still like to use Navy sayings like: "The smoking lamp is lit!" and the old favorite, "Smoke 'em if you got 'em!" I departed my last ship in 1992. In the 5 years I was there we went from smoking wherever we wanted, to smoking on the messdecks, to smoking at the amidship's weatherdeck. I quit cigarettes about year two.

The "Jimmy" pipe has a little rim bashing.

Your Dad looks pretty sharp in those whites. He has his hat squared, not very regulation, but I used to like that too.

From the text I gather that the "Jimmy Pipe" was a very well used old favorite. That certainly describes the pictured pipe. :)
