Happy Miniature Monday!
Sometimes our Mini-Books have surprising features! Here we have “The Last Two Swallows,” a souvenir from New Orleans. Inside are two tiny glass bottles, one labeled “Brandy” and the other “Scotch”, complete with diminutive tumblers on top! I imagine these once had liquor inside them, but it has apparently evaporated over time, since the corks on the bottles look relatively undisturbed. This would probably be a good book to have on hand in case of emergency! This delightful artifact was made in Germany.
