    a LA STRADA

    a LA STRADA, a 9mm filter from Italy


    thanks to Dave (on DGCF - Dave Whitney - Author of "OLD BRIAR" book on restoring and trading estate pipes.)
    who gave me the following info

    from Pipes, Artisans and Trademarks, by Josť Manuel Lopes
    La Strada was an Italian export brand.
    Its large formats had some success in the USA, and were included in the 1970 Tinder Box catalog.
