Braunschweiger & Co. Ad from 1893

Listing from 1893 California Demokrat Newspaper all in German listing the different brands for sale including Blue Grass Bourbon, Kentucky Owl Bourbon and Belmont Bourbon he was an importer and then regauged in San Francisco from Barrel to Bottle located at 7 Drumm Street, off California Street, located where today's Hyatt Regency Hotel now stands. The Germans dominated the wholesale liquor business in San Francisco up until prohibition. At $1.90 per gallon, a pretty darn good buy.......
