The Story of Dr Grabow pipes are just as rich as the quality of the pipes themselves. The tale starts off back in 1930, when a general physician named Dr. Paul Grabow lived in 2348 N. Seminary Avenue, with his back door opening to a particular drug store owned by a Mr. Brown who ran the usual ice-cream bar, wire chair and metal tables operation. Bonding over a mutual love of fly-fishing, Grabow and Brown used to get together and chat every evening in the backroom of the shop, smoking their pipes and talking.
They were soon joined by Mr. Linkman, a big businessman who owned M.Linkman & Co a big pipe factory one block away on W. Fullerton Avenue. Soon these three gentlemen struck up a close friendship, and the idea for Dr. Grabow’s pipes was born.
