1863 Turku, Finland Tabaco Smokers’ Gylde Document

Blog by Steve Laug

This is a fascinating piece of pipe history. It is a document from 1863 on the formation of  what they call a Tobacco Smokers’ Guild in Turku, Finland. I really like the “Counsell” or rules of the guild. They read well and the heart behind them is clear. It seems like it really was a pipe club in purpose.
