Here’s a really neat looking early lithographic sign from the Brown-Forman Distillery which was based in Louisville, Kentucky prior to prohibition. The image shows a bartender providing a pour of whiskey to a patron standing near the long wood bar.Details
Pictured is a beautiful red stoneware handled whiskey jug from Conrad Meng’s Saloon in Freeburg, Illinois. Circa 1900. Conrad Meng owned a saloon or tavern but also owned a General Merchandise Grocery store in Freeburg, Illinois around 1895-1915. This particular jug is a souvenir with a paper label thanking the recipient as a Christmas Greeting and a Happy New Year. The other side has a paper label also.
