Tourists in pre-prohibition times, as today, liked to take home mementos of their visit to popular attractions such as Niagara Falls. These sites were more than happy to oblige by making a variety of shot glasses available. Many of these glasses have survived in pristine condition, presumably because they were put in Great-Aunt Maud's curio cabinet and never used as a drinking vessel. There are variety of glasses to choose from. Niagara falls seems to be the premier tourist destination judging by the many glasses that are available, but the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY ranks a close second. Shown below is an example of a large shot glass that was sold in a custom-made case, but there are several larger glasses known to come from this event.
