More newspaper advertisements

My love of old newspaper advertisements keeps growing. I try to stay with items pre-1860 if I can. I recently purchased three Shipping & Commercial List newspapers from 1841. This paper one of the most successful and influential of the shipping papers printed in New York. It was published on Wednesday and Saturday mornings by W. Burritt & EB Clayton located on Wall Street.  Here are some neat ads from the newspapers.
Bavarian Brewery of Newark New Jersey ale brewed in the German style by JR Warburg. 

Giesler's Anchor Champagne imported by WD Cuthburtson of NY.

Cordial Distillery of John B. Rey Burling Slip.

Enos Wilder fire proof sages patent Salamander Safes & Chests.



James McCullough's Shot Tower formerly George Youle & Co. Check out my older posts about Youle.  Here is another piece of the Youle puzzle. Very neat surprise for me. The Youle billhead was my first early American billhead.
