Glad to hear you’re doing better, Dave.  The birds in picture 7 look more like vultures, rather than hawks.  Considering the ignominious demise of this once great distillery, it is sadly apropos.  ☹️

I am so Pleased That My Friends at New Liberty Distilling in Philadelphia  are making a great success Making Kinsey Whiskey Again. Their  10 year old Kinsey whiskey is so good, when I have money I always buy it. Any one who would like a tour there just go to their web site  and call them and say I told you to Call and they will take care of you. Their Distillery is Beautiful and I am Proud to have been able to give them History and information about Kinsey and Publicker Ind.! And I am Proud to Know them as Friends!

Here is a Picture of the Still Back in the early 1900's.

So, Dave -- You the guy on the right or the left? hahaha

 

I'll keep an eye out for the label now that I know what it looks like.

 

And, if you are the guy in the middle, I am godarn jealous of the amount of hair you have.

I haven't had time to explore much. Work is busy and I never stopped working through the whole Covid thing. Once things cool off, I'd love to visit Continental one more time again.
