A wide variety of artful beer advertising from the 1850s on ...

Here's a wonderful example of a Milwaukee beer advertisement from the German language newspapers. The wide range of advertisements could fill more than a couple of panels on my display of Milwaukee's German newspapers.
(If you must drink beer and conduct research at the same time, please do so both responsibly and ethically.)

Castles of the 99%; house images found in Milwaukee's historic newspapers ...

Milwaukee's East Side, 1898
Milwaukee's historic German language newspapers have many real estate advertisements that include images like this architect's rendering of an East Side address from 1898.
This  advert. for the house and side lot includes the old version of the address so I dug up the current address at the library. This home became someone's 'castle' in about 1898 and it's still here in 2014, with changes.

I have a growing list of citations for adverts. and featured addresses with architectural renderings or photos from the German papers.
