Notes:
Jacob Kronheim was born 1862 in NY and ran a Saloon according to the 1910 Census. He's listed as a saloon owner in DC directories from 1900-1914, and he's listed under Wine & Liquor in DC directories from 1915-1916. I don't know when he was at 359 M street SW, as listed on the bottle depicted below, but that's the same address as R.T. Mazinger's bottling establishment.

Milton S. Kronheim (b. 1889) was Jacob's son. He is listed in city directories under Wine & Liquor between 1911 and 1916. But none of those city directories list him at 2900 V. Street NW, which is what the label on the bottle below lists him at. I suspect that bottle was from sometime after prohibition was lifted in 1933.
