"Mrs Rachel Hamilton (nee Johnston), nicknamed "Big Rachel", was originally from Ireland but lived in Partick. She was 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighed around 17 stone. She worked as a labourer in Tod & MacGregor shipyards, as a forewoman navvy at the Jordanhill Brickworks and latterly as a farm worker at Anniesland. Big Rachel was sworn in as a special constable during the Partick Riots in August 1875."

Friday was my birthday and my sugar bear got me not one but TWO blends of tobacco as part of my presents. One is a Maple Walnut blend and the other is Strawberry Shortcake-ish (no label on the bag). They both smell good enough to eat and do not disappoint - two tasty smokes here.
~Smoke in peace.~
