I remember Mail Pouch chewing tobacco signage and perhaps ads from my first summer in Wythe County and Wytheville (40 years ago this last summer should you ask, long after steam in the valley and after the ending of passenger service - though as in Durham City England, the sound of the freight trains lulled me to sleep up on the farm south of town - the tracks were just down the mountain and I may have some pix from then to scan) though whether anyone I knew chewed it I don't recall.

I walked 12 miles for the Pirate Castle for the 4th time on June 22nd - please help bysponsoring me

>Several years ago, I was
"chastised" for remembering a "Chew Mail Pouch
Tobacco" sign I saw on the Wyoming Hotel in Mullens once when I
stayed there back in the early seventies. I also remember being
asked if I wanted air conditioning and was given a small electric
fan. Just recently a photo was posted on this site confirming my
recallection of that sign.
