Robert Smith Ale Brewing Company, was founded in Philadelphia in 1774, incorporated in 1887, and was acquired by Schmidt’s around 1881. In 1909, Schmidt’s, through their Robert Smith Ale Brewing Company brand, commissioned a local artist, James Preston, to create a series of twelve works depicting pre-revolutionary taverns and inns in or near Philadelphia as a way to promote the heritage of the Robert Smith beer brand.

James Moore Preston (1873-1962) was an artist and illustrator who trained under Thomas Anshutz at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Preston also did one cover for the “Saturday Evening Post,” in April 1905, although his most active period was during the 1920s.
