|Absinthe Postcards VII - L'Heure Verte
|Postcards or photos showing "real-life" scenes of absinthe drinking are extremely rare. This 1893 postcard,
showing a group of country folk relaxing over their absinthes at the end of hard day's fishing, is the only known
contemporary photo of an absinthe fountain in use.
|An Absinthe Terminus style
4-robinet "Coq" fountain
stands on the small gueridon,
filling two absinthe glasses,
one of which has a spoon
balanced on the rim.
