Late nineteenth century (circa 1870s) lithograph poster advertising H & J Pfaff Lager Beer. The H & J Pfaff Brewery was founded in 1857 by Henry and Jacob Pfaff on Pynchon Street (now Columbus Avenue) in Boston, Massachusetts, and operated until 1918. Many German and, later, Irish workers brewed lager beer on the site. The poster, by Dominick Drummond, shows actor Joseph Jefferson as Rip Van Winkle seated on a keg being pulled by goats with satyrs on either side.
