Another day looking at blurry photos. Sad, it's true. Since Dolores gave me a magnifying glass my transcriptions have become more accurate. 108%.

Guinness. I was pleased to find a couple of mentions of their bottled Stout. Still, pre-WW II, a beer considerably stronger than today. Marvel at its power.
