Kannenbeer

This adver­tise­ment from 1905 is for beer in stoneware jugs. The dis­trib­u­tors, based in South Tot­ten­ham, Lon­don, promised to deliv­er a min­i­mum of six jugs to your house in their Own Vans. I love that they claim “Ladies pre­fer it”, and that the “med­ical pro­fes­sion” sup­ports it.

I also find myself eager to try their Extra Nour­ish­ing Stout.
