Prince Albert advertisement depicting a Native American smoking Prince Albert tobacco. Caption: "The ancient and honorable custom of sneaking off to the woods for a smoke probably originated with the Indians. Some oldtime squaw put the buck squarely up to her provider that his pipe didn't improve the air in the wigwam. If you belong to the ancient and honorable sneakers, you're smoking the wrong brand of pipe food. The aromatic fragrance of P.A. makes the jimmy pipe welcome indoors everywhere. P.A. has made a killing with men folks because it don't, can't, won't bite the tongue. The bite has been removed by a patented process."
