The life and times of the Conrad Adam family in Kendall County, Texas

Gustav Bergmann’s Saloon Ad

In the 1883-1884, Gustav Bergmann placed an advertisement for his saloon at 259 Market Street in the San Antonio City Directory. I looked in several other San Antonio directories and this was the only advertisement for his establishment I found. The bull certainly looks happy and thirsty.

In 1877-1878 city directory, under Saloons the location of the saloon was the “sw corner of Commerce and Presa”. In 1886-1887 his saloon is not listed, but in 1888-1889 the address for the saloon was 43 Alamo Street.

Gustav is the son of Joseph Bergmann.
