Doelker, The white mode (1923)
Artist : OTTO BAUMBERGER (1889-1961)
“In the Plains of Armageddon it is difficult to obtain tobacco at all…”. An advertisement in the August 1935 Blackwood’s Magazine for “Everfresh” Barneys. Among the choice phrases we are told that Barneys is “now smoked and loved wherever white men go” and that Barneys “will probably set you up in pipe-joy until the end of your smoking days.” Which, on balance, with that attitude, I’d give until 1946.
I wasn’t too up on my combined knowledge of religious reference and Middle Eastern geography but it is a real place, of sorts.
