The liquor group is full of almost every type of spirit made by many of the world's top producers.

Currently my oldest Campbell Soup ads are in the late teen's, with some possibly going back as far as 1910. As many as three kids can appear at a time in some ads. Color ads are rare prior to 1930, but even the B+W ones of that era, have some red in them. Trains- Pennsylvannia, New York Central, The Chessie System, B & O, Sante fe, along with many others, can be shipped today. Also many wonderful articles about trains, and the men of the rails can be found as well. What a great way to augment your collection, with antique advertising.
