    Description

    "C. L. Centlivre Brewing Co." Advertising Poster, Circa 1895. 37.5" x 24.5". This beautiful poster shows an aerial view of the Centlivre Brewing facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana, founded in 1862 by an immigrant from the Alsace region of France, Charles Louis Centlivre. The poster shows the brewhouse, office, store room, bottling works, cold storage, wagon shed, sables, and the residence of the Centlivre family. Along the streets, clogged with beer wagons, are two C. L. Centlivre electric street cars. Atop the Mansard-roofed brewhouse is a gilt metal sculpture of Charles Centlivre, a bowler held in his left hand and his right foot resting on a beer keg. The poster, bright and crisp, was printed by the Henderson Lithographing Company, Cincinnati, Ohio. Never trimmed and in near mint condition.
