Texas Carlsbad Well [ 2 of 3: People on Porch]

Description:

An early picture (probably taken from a newspaper) of the Texas Carlsbad Drinking Pavilion, located at 415 NW 1st Avenue. It stood across the street west of the Crazy Well and its first Crazy Drinking Pavilion. The large, two story Second Crazy Pavilion, built adjacent, and to the south of the first one, faced west toward the Carlsbad.
The Carlsbad had been replaced by a brick structure by 1909. Stained glass windows were later added to the building that depicted Ponce de Leon and his "Fountain of Youth" mineral water that
"Makes a man love HIS wife.
"Makes a wife love HER husband,
"Robs the divorce court of its business,
"Takes the temper out of red-headed people,
"Puts ginger into ginks and pepper into plodders." (Please see the picture one down, but one, for a better view of it.)
This is the second picture of this image. The first one has been cropped, and does not show the outer parts of the picture. The third one is a slightly clearer picture.
A colophon on the lower left corner reads: "Evans Photo Min Wells Tex"
