This is where the term "Show and Shine" came from.
They're just out of gas and trying to get home. One jug for the flivver and one for the guys.
I think this is what the young people refer to as "squad goals." Whatever that means.
Par-T Time .....
We'll just take care of these here squeezens then tend to the farm.
I'm just wondering the way the title is worded that Herb may have had a snort from one of those jugs before he started typing
Good one, Dave.
These guys must be friends with these Maxwell mechanics...
: ^ )
The guy on the left is the factory driver, getting his cup of courage. That is the only way they could get anyone to race back in the day, is "ever clear courage"
The ratio was 1 cup for the driver 2 cups for the mechanics and 3 cups for the car.
Brasscarguy that is a great picture.....
Spokane had a high number of outfits producing and selling these jugs with their varied markings
for Spokane distilleries and sellers. I have about a dozen different jugs with Spokane underglaze ink
stamps. A favorite, is a from a place that advertised itself as a "family liquor store" !
"Hey kids, ... grabbed yourself a jug of mash !". Gotta get 'em started young, I guess !
Photo, "The Up-to-Date Family Liquor Store" !!!
Mix your mash in the moons first quarter and your whisky will taste like it orter. Old family recipes.
It's called caņa blanca here :-)
I own that Maxwell photo on a postcard which is probably where this version came from as I put it on the internet trying to prove my theory that it is an unpublished shot of Eddie Rickenbacker who drove for Maxwell and was known in later life to have a "taste" now and then.
I love that photo. Which one do you believe to be Eddie Rickenbacker?
Keith, I'll get that scan to you later. Check out Eddie on the left in both photos here: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/453239.html?1403309576
