I can't find it now, but there is a picture of Donald Rumsfeld smoking a pipe, it's sort of a candid and he's being sort of silly and making a face. I tried google image search and could not find it...
I searched and couldn’t find a thread like this (except for one devoted to specific blends of famed pipe smokers) so I apologize if there is one already.
I am a sucker and huge fan of historical (recent or otherwise) photos and videos of pipe smokers. The smoker doesn’t have to be famous (though sometimes that’s more interesting). As a relatively younger guy, I love thinking about a time when it was far more common for men and women to smoke a pipe, in private and public and to display it proudly for a camera.
Please post your favorite historical photos and videos of pipe smokers!
Here we have the late Justice Antonin Scalia being questioned at his confirmation hearing.
I've had a great love for jazz fusion drummer, Billy Cobham, for many years. And then, just recently, I found out that he was likely a pipe smoker based on this photo. Now, he's even cooler in my book. Can anyone identify the pipe and/or tobacco pouch in his pocket?
