Faust, Tony portrait, n.d

Portrait of Tony Faust, n.d

Portrait of Tony Faust, n.d. Faust was a restaurateur and mutual friend of Eberhard Anheuser and Adolphus Busch. He included advertisements for Anheuser-Busch beer in his restaurant advertisements during the 1870s. This was unusual since the company rarely advertised its products in newspapers until several years after Anheuser’s 1880 death. From The City of St. Louis and Its Resources (St. Louis: St. Louis Star-Savings, 1893), 123.
