P.L. Keyser


Company Names, addresses, dates1:
  P.L. Keyser, B south n 3rd East (1865)

Notes:
The census for DC lists Peter L. Keyser, born 1842 in Germany, but he was listed as a physician. It's possible he put his name on a bottle for mineral water that he prescribed for his patients. It seems more likely that this bottle refers to a different P.L. Keyser, as it doesn't seem to be old enough to be from the era when people thought soda water had curative powers.

Bottles:
