Welcome is the best cheer.
Thomas Fuller, M.D., Gnomologia (1732)


Barkeep 1

The bartender at the Czecho-Slovak Dramatic Club.

He demonstrates the proper drinker's posture. One foot on the bar rail and one elbow on the bar.

Barkeep 2

The bartender at the Sokol Club.

Note the salt shakers on the bar. Beer then, especially draft beer, tended to go flat very quickly. A dash of salt brought back the bubbles and sharpened the taste.
