This is Dad on the shelf. There is his old glasses, his dirty cowboy hat, a little jug, in the background and of course a bag of Old Bull Durham smoking tobacco roll your own cigarettes.  I think they must have cost about ten cents a bag back in the 1940's or maybe it was twenty-five cents.  It beats three or five dollar a pack now in the millennium.
