Vintage Ruppert Beer ad
I found this photo on Waymarking.com posted by HaLiJuSaPa. Below is their description:

Long Description:
The ad is for Ruppert Beer, a major New York area brewery during the first half of the 20th century. It’s founder, Col. Jacob Ruppert, owned the New York Yankees during their 1920’s dynasty and is the person who bought Babe Ruth in 1919 from Harry Frazee’s Boston Red Sox and began “the curse of the Bambino”

Until the building in front of it was knocked down a few years ago, this ad was “covered up”.

“Ferrara – America’s First Espresso Bar Since 1892”

There were several technological inventions begun in the early to mid-1800?s that worked on the concept of brewing coffee faster, but it was not until 1901 that an Italian named Luigi Bezzera patented a machine that employed steam pressure to force water through ground coffee held in clampable filters. ¹
