OK. I have another brand for the Mexican list. It's a brand of ice, actually. "Iglú" ice has been commercially sold since 1904 when the company was founded by Pedro Bang in Mexico City, and pushed forward by his son, Tomás Bang Chavarría in the 1930s before refrigeration became widespread.

The brand enters the list since the Mexican SP period guess up to 1910 at the start of the Mexican Civil War.

And again, Mexican historian Irene Barcenas (@barcenairene in Twitter), gives us another brand for the Mexican list, with a bit of history that needs to be expounded on - needs research, on other words.

Mexican General and Republic President, Manuel González, had a colorful background as an unlikely impresario. González fought as a lieutenant in the Mexican American War in the 1840s, and later as a general under the command of Porfirio Díaz against the 2nd French Intervention in the 1860s. After his term in office as president of the republic (1880—84), González invented a water purification method which led him to establish the "Electropura" bottled water company in 1890.


Over the years the brand would be purchased by foreign interests and merged with newer brands such as Santorini water, founded in 1994. The brand name Electropura is still used for large water bottles, such as those used for office coolers, but in 2004, in the midst of the internet age, the brand name is updated to "e'pura"

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

The Ministry of Tea respectfully advises you to drink one cup of tea day...for that +5 Moral Fibre stat.

I didn't want to create a new thread for this, and it didn't seem to fit anywhere else.

Here's a 1918 photo of what is described as a self-service grocery store:



The turnstyles seem to be anti-theft devices.
