Theodore Netter Wants to Sell You Wine and Whiskey


We spotted this spectacular 1910 photo of Market Street looking west towards City Hall on the Old Images of Philadelphia Facebook page today. The whole photo is spectacular but the ad for Theodore Netter Wine and Whiskey particularly tickled us.

Maybe one day, a single proprietor will again be able to sell all of us wine and whiskey. But we have learned not to hold our breath for that.

Can you also spot the Horn and Hardart in the photo?
