Circa 1900 whiskey bottles w/labels found

Here's a few attic found whiskey bottles I just got.  Thought I would share since you rarely see original paper labeled bottles this old.
 
First photo are Sam DeGraw's Three Star Monogram Whiskey, Cleveland, Ohio.  Four different bottle styles and two label sizes.  I only found one 1907 reference on the internet regarding Sam DeGraw, that he was a saloonkeeper in Cleveland and was having a 20 room, $50,000 mansion built in its western suburb of Lakewood.

    Next is three different versions of Kahler's Whiskey, Cleveland, Ohio.  Interesting label on the right, plus it has an address on it.

    The first two are from Cleveland, and the third is from Cincinnati.
     
    The middle label has a neat barrel design, except they stuck in on there upside down.

    And last is Old Jordon Bourbon Whiskey, Old Jordan Distillery, Mercer County, Kentucky.  John B. Thompson, Distiller. 
     
    It's a quart size bottle, with a glass stopper.

    Forgot about these generic store whiskey labels.  All are Cleveland, except the Gillsy Rye has no location on it.
     
    The old metal screw caps are nice.

    Maybe it's written in invisible ink..?

    I think it's a very handsome lot, in remarkably good condition. It must have been murder getting them so squeaky clean without damaging the labels.. do you have a group shot of all of them together, Rick?

    Saw something about a saloon keeper. I guess I didn't do a double take on what it actually said. I've been pulling a 30 hour grind with no sleep gimmie a break  But really....what WAS I talking about...?

    Really nice bottles... I'd be really happy finding bottles in such great condition with labels too. He posted the story in the other thread, and I agree, the story is very cool.
