Medium: Print on paper
Liqueurs are usually flavoured and sweetened distilled alcoholic drinks but this product is advertised as alcohol free. The Temperance Movement popular in the 19th century advocated the avoidance of alcohol and would have promoted non-alcoholic beverages like this one.
Also mentioned on this leaflet is the New Orleans Exposition of 1884. Although New Orleans was still being physically reconstructed after the carnage of the American civil war, it held this show to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first shipment of cotton from the United States. The exposition attracted worldwide attention and international participation. The main building covered some 30 acres and it's Horticultural Hall was the largest glass conservatory in the world at that time.
