Texas Carlsbad Water

Description:

A group of people stand outside Texas Carlsbad Water. The Carlsbad was one of the earlier, and more popular drinking pavilions in Mineral Wells. It was located on NW 1st. Avenue, at NW 4th Street, directly across the street west of the Crazy Well. Its slogan was:
Makes a man love HIS wife,
Makes a woman 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 note the supports for possible electric lines, the unpaved street, and the horses obscurely visible at the far right of the photograph.
