Berry Bros. & Co., circa 1910

Flickr is a great website that I often use to find images for my posts.  I quickly found two shop-front images featuring Berry Bros. & Co. from circa 1910 and Berry Bros. & Rudd from 2011.  The older picture of the store looks quite inviting with the delicate, airy windows.  These images are from curry15 Carole King’s flickr stream.  By the way, I also recommend the Berry Bros. & Rudd flickr stream.

And here is a photograph taken in 1997 of the author in front of the store.

The Wine Merchants of Eugene Atget

After looking for coins to include in my recent Greek post I became interested in looking at other wine related images.  I noticed a book of photographs by Eugene Atget that my mom gave me while I was in college.  I flipped through the pages and was delighted to find pictures of wine merchants.  For this post I have put together a small collection of these wine merchant images.  There are other images of restaurants and cafes that feature window advertisements for wine, liquor, cider, and absinthe that I might use for a future post.  But that post must wait as I am now curious to find an image of Berry Brothers & Rudd, London from the same period.  The images in this post were sourced from The George Eastman House Collection, Institute national d’histoire de l’art, and the Bibliotheque nationale de France,
