Another selection of Old Ads has been uploaded – not as many for Powers Whiskey as has been spotted for tobacco products.
There were quite a few things that I had not realised –
that they had made gin as well as whiskey;
that the distillery was at John’s Lane;
that the apostrophe was dropped at some stage;
and, that the marketing saying was ‘Three Swallow’ as I had always used ‘Three Swallows’.
More research is required as to why the apostrophe was dropped and why a singular swallow after three.
