 Interesting!

Are the temps in C and F?

Would guess it to be an early piece and likely quite scarce, in clumsy attempt to pinpoint time frame I searched for the tagline sweet as a rose...

...and found this delightful thing:

 

Was fascinated also by the banned "beer 'n baccy" postcard!

An unusual find was this bizarre advert, I do say that they offended my sensibilities as a pipesmoker! LOL

Rather odd comparison!

I've always been curious about Havelock and wonder how it was, if perhaps it was a favorite of old codgers similar to St. Bruno and Condor in the UK, and wonder if like those tobaccos if that Havelock also carried a unique flavor and scent - I know they made several variants though, perhaps the Aromatic one is a good bet for that.

Have you ever smoked Havelock? If so how'd it taste?

If not, have you ever known or been around anyone who smoked Havelock, and if so did it carry a particular specific scent or "room note"?

 Hi Relics & Philifumo,

E J Newbegin, founded in 1807, at Eagle Works, High St, Stokton-on-Tees, Sunderland. The "Havelock" brand introduced in 1894. Newbegin brands taken over by Robert Sinclair in early 1900s and "Havelock" plug recorded in their 1920s price list. The Framed showcard advertising "Sweet as a Rose" by Havelock but manufactured in Melbourne, Australia. I agree with philofumo, an old codgers brand on par with "Thick Twist"-"Condor" & "Erinmore" and most of these brands had powerful aromas, great for keeping the bugs at bay and everyone else.

Good info there .
That Sweet as a Rose framed showcard is certainly an early beauty
