This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#ZLBE076 - Very Old and Unusual Home City Temperance Beer Label
Vintage 4 3/4" wide The Home City Temperance Beer label. These are an interesting piece of history. Around the turn of the century, In mid Ohio, just north of here, the Temperance Movement (to make alcohol illegal) was raging. In 1906 "The Home City Brewing Company" in Springfield, Ohio was established, and created Temperance Beer as a low alcohol alternative. In 1909, there was a vote in Springfield, and all of the saloons were closed and alcohol could no longer be sold in any amount.  Temperance Beer only had 1/2 of 1% alcohol, but could not be sold in Springfield.  That was the end of the brand.  The brewery kept going selling their other brands outside of Springfield until 1919 when prohibition was enacted and the Brewery met it's demise.  A  journal from that time period writes that when Springfield went dry under the Rose Law on March 29th, 1909 church bells rang all over the city and prayer meetings took place everywhere. Ninety-seven saloons and Temperance Beer went out of business that day. The labels says "Guaranteed Under the Food and Drug Act of 1906" "Contains Less than 1/2 of 1% alcohol" "Guaranteed Non-Intoxicating" "Guaranteed not to come within the consideration of the U. S. Internal Revenue Department". These labels were found in the attic of the building, and we were able to purchase all of them.
