End of the smoke pole in sight
12 February 2020
The National Railways have had smoke poles for years now on every platform, around which smoking is still allowed. This should end by the end of this year, in line with the general trend to combat tobacco consumption. The disappearance of the smoking pole heralds the end of an era in which cigarette smoking was tolerated. Nowadays smoking is surrounded with so many restrictions that it takes away your appetite. And rightly so, addiction is not a pleasure. We hope that the anti-smoke will make its mark so that in future we can take an unprejudiced look at the non-inhaling and enjoying pipe smoking. That should enhance the new bloom for our museum. Not the eternal association with only the bad aspects.
