The image comes from Life, April 1939. A feature on 3 families, French, German and English.
Look beyond who's holding the glasses. Dead informative photo, which is why I'm posting it. Points of interest:
- beermats. Branded beermats. And, if I'm not mistaken, branded Schultheiss.
- colour: the beer is very pale. Looks like a Pils/Helles/Export
- glass size: that's not very big - 30 cl?
- scary: men, haircuts, uniforms.
The caption says: ". . . The beer has grown steadily worse in Berlin."
It wasn't going to get any better soon.
