"Bull Durham tobacco"

Used to work with an old logger who said he didn't have a hole in his body he would put that tobacco into.

Just to add to the picture, I remember that when I was a boy, my Grandpa used to smoke Peerless Tobacco, which I think was a contemporary tobacco of Blackwell's Durham.

When smoking was a part of society, I remember as a kid crossing the street in my small town to avoid the terrible smell of stale tobacco coming from the billiard hall which also always seemed like a rather evil/scary place. And there was no such thing as filters on the smokes. Passing out cigarettes to the G.I.'s most certainly must have anchored the habit and social acceptability.
And part of social statement was having gold or silver cigarette containers. And heavy table top silver lighters and silver ashtrays after a linen and china dinner finished off with rum cake and wine or whiskey. All very cool to a kid.

My parents had a "machine" that would roll a cigarette....paper was on a roll.....
fill it with tobacco ....seal the top...start turning the little hand crank on the machine...perfect roll....AND they could make them any length they wanted. I was intrigued by this whole process.......

For a while, my dad used Bull Durham in a little pouch. Picture of a Shorthorn bull on the front.
Remember the cans of tobacco?
