Imported cigars were a huge item (6 pp) and considering that Prohibition was not repealed until December 1933, the "non-alcoholic beverages" section is a mine-field of obfustication, including, as it does, such items as Grand Mariner, Cointrreau and Benedictine (each 12% alcohol, i.e. 24 proof), rye, bitters (40%), many wines and beer and an intriguing non-alocoholic "Gin" made by Burroughs, the manufacturer of our present-day Beefeaters.The firm had a building on at 48-52 East 43rd Street in New York City.NYHS has the 1927 and 1937 catalogues.
