    Hi everyone,

    So one of my 1st posts was a question about my grand pas pipe. My Dad has it and I took some pictures of it when I joined this forum. Anyways I just found this week a picture of him with his pipe
    :) so I just wanted to share. He lived on the land up north and pulled in just a bit of money by hosting Americans at his camp for fishing trips.

    Very nice pipe, awesome vintage pictures, and is that an old school snow-blower in the second one? Very neat post, thanks for sharing!

    He used it to haul cargo around the camp in the snow.

    Ok, here is my Grandfather circa 1925 when he was about 15:

    And his 1937 Dunhill Bruyere billiard:

    He died in 1961, which was 15 years before I was born. I smoke his pipe once a week, usually on Friday night.

    I wish I had my Granddad's pipes, at the time I was too much of a dumb ass.

    There is one photo of my great grand father with his pipe but but the only family member that speaks to me, or me to them, is my sister who may or may not have a copy I can have.
