1909: POTH BREWERY OF PHILADELPHIA OPENS A TRENTON FACILITY
Apparently the popularity of the beer from Trenton's Peoples Brewing Co. in South Trenton gave the Philadelphia Brewer, F.A. Poth the idea that competition would result in increased sales to Trentonians. A number of bottle collectors have specimens of F.A. Poth Beer in their collections. I wonder if that building on the corner of Perrine and North Clinton Avenue still exists in 21st century Trenton.
SJBill has left a new comment on your post "1909: POTH BREWERY OF PHILADELPHIA OPENS A TRENTON...":
Sir, the intersection at N. Clinton and Perrine still exists. From my vantage point, which is 3000 miles away, a TRUE Trenton landmark remains to this day.
63 Perrine Ave, Trenton, NJ 08638, which is at the corner of N. Clinton Ave., is the home of Taylor Provisions, the producer of what may be the world's finest Pork Roll. ;-)
THANKS FOR THE COMMENT, BILL:
I am aware that the intersection exists. I made many visits to the American Biltrite Rubber Company back in the 50's. My query was whether the POTH building still exists. Is it shown in the graphic at the top of this page?
