Antique Civil War Pabst Blue Ribbon Photograph Reenactment Scene
Regular priceSale price
This one is just a gift that keeps on giving. It's an antique sepia photograph of a Civil War reenactment crew administering Pabst Blue Ribbon "medicine" to a wounded soldier in the medical tent. Who knew there were hipsters in the early 1900s! The photographer is N.H. Weaver, as indicated below the photograph. I'm sure he was chuckling and the alcohol was flowing.
What a scene. These guys are hilarious. Check out everything that's going on in the photo:
- The Pabst Blue Ribbon sign at the top of the tent, complete with the slogan "The best of quality." - The guy pouring PBR into the wounded soldiers mouth while smoking a wood pipe. - The other guy checking the wounded guy's pulse. - The axes used as a barricade.
The entire piece measures 10" x 7". The photograph measures 8" x 6". The photograph is experiencing some fading. There are stains near the middle left and upper left. There are also little specs of discoloration, above the tent and near the smoker's head. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship to the continental USA only. Free shipping on this piece.
I mean, seriously. Civil War, PBR, drunks, humor, axes...it's got it all. Look at the pics again. It'll lighten anyone's day.
