Put that in your pipe...



Let's start the week in a tobacconists, of all places. You can find G. Smith & Sons at 74 Charing Cross Road, where it has been since 1869. Apart from the selection of pipes and this cheerful chappie taking a pinch of snuff, it is also noteable for having been the very first shop in Charing Cross Road.

Who remembers Bob Newhart's Introducing Tobacco to Civilisation?

Government Health Warning: Reading a blog about tobacco will not damage your health.

Lisi, the bookshop at 84 Charing Cross Road is long gone. A pic from there may arrive shortly.

Edwin, ;-)

Thank you for the link! Do you know in Arradon we have a real British phone box, and it works?
