White ball clay smoking pipe with "TD" makers mark

Ball clay smoking pipe 

An erotic image graces the molded pewter pipe tamper.  This artifact was excavated by Dr. John Cotter at 310 Cypress Street, the current address of the Almshouse site, and may date to a later post-Almshouse occupation of the site.
