Good stuff Pete!

I'm always amused to see such ads portraying the father/husband smoking a pipe.

My Dad smoked a pipe. He was an Aircraft Engineer for Qantas and had been in the RAAF and all those guys smoked like a chimney.

I remember my third form Commerce teacher smoking a pipe as he walked to the school each day. He smoked it for the entire distance.

Commerce! I loved Commerce at School .In fact I failed all other subjects but in Commerce I got the highest Mark in the School. I still enjoy it today and had I been able to stay at school I think I would of continued along the lines of Commerce.

The pipe smoker died a few years back but I don't know from what cause. Another boss I had who smoked B&H incessantly died of lung cancer within a year of retiring. I'd had lunch with him not long beforehand and I noticed that he'd quit smoking. Next thing I know some months later his wife phoned me to tell me he'd died in hospital and advised me of the funeral date and time. She said he couldn't stand the chemotherapy and asked to be let die.

... but we digress.

Great ads, Pete.

I'm restoring the 23" Console Deluxe Fine Line model 121-24 , pictured in its Fine Line cabinet with castors on the last page.

I see it's priced at 199gns, which calculates as over $6000 in 2016!

I will post some photos of the revival so far and get some assistance with next steps, please.

Cheers

Alan Merritt
