This was my favourite pipe for a while a Bruno Freehand plateau US estate pipe, especially for St. Bruno tobacco, but I never had much luck with it, I broke the shank & glued it back together with superglue, then it was knocked onto a wooden fire surround & broke again & I glued it again , but I am reluctant to use it in case I break it again. "O tobacco spirits what went wrong......"
Been a few years since I posted a photo last time, on the old forum. But, why not? Decided to play around with my camera this weekend, and went for something Old West inspired. The pipe is just some old Adsorba, but darn it smokes well. And yes, it has SWRA in it, as usual.
You know I've thought there's a slight resemblance too - particularly on the old avatar I used - but I have to correct you about the wig
Fred stopped playing and went into media work in the early 1970s and long hair like that was all the rage at the time in the UK .. on the Historical Pipe Smokers thread there are a few pics I posted of Fred from that era and one from later on when he thinned out gracefully
