Found this site which has pictures of George Simenon and the actors who played inspector Maigret through the years. Simenon does not have a single pic where he does not have a pipe either in his mouth or in his hand. He is said to have had over 300 pipes and smoked Royal Yacht almost exclusively. He's said to have smoked near 20 pipes a day!! Twisted Evil

Simenon, et alia. Cool. Real pipe smokers from a different era. There are no doubt a few notables of today who smoke pipes, but wouldn't be caught dead with one in a photograph. Bad for business, old sport, don'tcha know?

(I always wondered about these pipe-clenchin' guys from days of yore. Did they use rubber bit protectors or just let the indentations happen?)
