Garden City Brewery, Chicago, 1902-1925

We are happy to share this most recent addition to our collection of pre-Prohibiton brewery photographs.  Though a bit rough, we could not leave this one behind.  Where ya gonna find another?  As the sign in front tells us, this photo was taken beside the Garden City Brewery of Chicago (1902-1925).  The  bottles sitting on the table at front bear labels for Daisy, Export, and Malt Vita.  Etched glasses are also seen on the table, as well as in the hands of the employees in the top row.
