Old Absinthe Bar
"Gen. Andrew Jackson, Sarah Bernhardt among notables served from it."
The back says:
"The Old Absinthe Bar, 400 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, La., is one of the most treasured antiques in a city famous for its ancient background. Mark Twain was served over it; so was Gen. Andrew Jackson, the Pirate Lafitte and Jenny Lind. Tourists truly feast on these colorful and historic relics, assembled in 1806, and which are still in the custody of L. J. Cazebonne, son of the late Pierre Cazebonne."
I found this in my grandfather's house after his death, and sent it to a friend in Europe who loves New Orleans, and absinthe, too.
