Digging through old photo archives can lead you to some interesting discoveries. In this case I found a couple of interesting bourbon ads. The first is a trading card, printed for Big Spring whiskey, sometime between 1880 and 1920. What makes it interesting is that the subject is a naked woman. The second is for “Belle of Nelson Old fashion Home Made Sour Mash Whiskey” (1883) which depicts a Turkish harem of nude women. What do naked women have to do with wiskey? I have no idea, except maybe that history has proven time, and time again, that men and money are easily parted by the sight of naked women.
