    It is hoped that this year with ancient waterways society will be a safe and healthy year for all. Also, hope that all will feel welcome to communicate

      It is hoped that this year with ancient waterways society will be a safe and healthy year for all.
       
      Also, hope that all will feel welcome to communicate about areas of interest.
       
      To share information about historic clay pipe manufacturing; one example of a historic pipe manufacturing museum is located in Pamplin, Virginia that is on the National Register of Historic Places.
       
      An article about the pipes made here is entitled "Clay Pipes from Pamplin" and is shown at the following link.

      University of Missouri highlighted examples of these pipes, at this link:

      Makers marks on other examples of clay pipes from European manufacture are shown at this link.
       
      One wonders when the earliest examples of clay pipes originated and where the tradition started?
       
      Happy new year to all;
