Edinburgh Ale

A salt print, dated c. 1844, of three men, James Ballantine, George Bell and David Octavius Hill, drinking Edinburgh ale. A contemporary source described the brew as "a potent fluid, which almost glued the lips of the drinker together, and of which few, therefore, could dispatch more than a bottle."
