Drinking Absinthe at The Old Absinthe House 1909
A recent addition to our collection is this vintage postcard of the The Old Absinthe House, sent May 1st, 1909.
The front of the postcard is a fairly common image, but what was written on the back, was quite interesting as the text reads: "Absinthe is a great French drink, this is the only place in this country where they drip it, Holes are worn in the marble, an inch deep."
