Caro and Meles meles,

to add to your comments Meles meles.

It was very popular overhere among the generation before me, the Thirties. Alltough when I was working during school vacations among bricklayers it was still common. Mostly on the back of the hand and then snuffed from there. BTW: snuff (Dutch: snuif) sniff(schuiven)
But some said to me that the real thing was as showed overhere:




My grandmother, as most older woman, were also sniffing especially in company of other old women as socializer. Many times I was overthere too in such a company with my grandmother when I guess was 6 years old...

Meles meles has most already explained but I add it nevertheless:

For the start of smoking in history I will look tomorrow...

Kind regards to both of you from Paul.
