Trove Tuesday – Home Saloon

You’ve heard of home brew but what about a home saloon?  For some Hamilton wives with husbands never home until after 6.00pm, it may have seemed an attractive proposition with a good return.  This humorous article, taken from an American newspaper, was published in the Hamilton Spectator 100 years ago today.  It’s another example of the little treasures you find when you dig at Trove.
