Easy to Find, Hard to Leave




Twin City Tavern was located midway down the Tuchscherer block, between Mill Street and Racine.  My suspicion is that this matchbook dates from the 1930s, judging from the four digit phone number and the spine saying that happy days are here again.  Prohibition was only repealed in 1933, so the time frame would fit.  I like the photograph; most matchbooks of the era have a drawing, at best.

  1. Would this be what later was the W-W bar?
