Absinthe advertisement in Marseille

Oxygénée Cusenier was a very famous absinthe brand in the Belle Epoque. On postcards from that time, you often see advertisements for this absinthe brand. Check out the picture below. The house, where the absinthe advertisement was placed, is still there. Overall, it still looks quite similar, don´t you think… Old postcards are a great tool, to investigate the absinthe culture of the past. We will soon upload some more postcards, for example from French Bistros, where you can see, how people prepared their glass of absinthe.
