I Wil-son Be There - Wilson Whiskey #Vintage #Postcards #Antiques #Bottles

I Wil-son be there.

At first I thought this was just a made-up whiskey name so the comic postcard could make it's bad pun. But something made me decide to check the name out. So I Googled around a bit. Didn't turn up any articles/info about Wilson's, but according to the labels, Wilson Whiskey was established in 1823 in Relay, Maryland. (See lots of label pix here.)

Here's a few more Wilson's images:
