Who used to smoke a pipe? Alexandra Hotel 26th September 1973

Malcolm Sharp… just shown hastings pipe group

Dave Nattress…My dear departed (long since) Dad and a smelly, ‘orrible, stink the house out thing it was too!! Was much later in my life before I discovered a bit of Dark Shag for myself. Oops! Am I allowed to say this?

Mike Vawdrey… Smoked a pipe between 1964 – 9 because I thought it made me look intellectual and lent a certain gravitas ! (along with reading The Times although I really found it very boring). In the end decided it was a filthy habit. Genuinely liked the taste of some tobaccos such as Cope’s Escudo. Digger was bit rough however. St Bruno wasn’t bad or for a milder smoke Three Nuns , Edgeworth or some of the rather perfumed Dutch blends – Holland House ? ?

Cigarette Stubber on the buses

Gloria Scanlon… When smoking was allowed on buses .

Diane Leigh… Upstairs only.

Judy Atkinson… And the ceilings dripped with nicotine. Used to get off the bus reeking of stale cigarette smoke 🤮 so glad when smoking was banned indoors

Kevin O’Doherty… I understand your point. But it should have been possible to have had yes or no smoking pubs. Choice was better than a ban.
