For years I've been looking for a photograph of the Fischer Brewery and have just discovered two.  This photo is of the entertainment side, with the bowling alley, salon and outdoor porch.  The brewing was done in the 2 story building just visible to the right.  It is credited to Adolph Fischer and, based on the Sanborn 1902 map description 'Dilapidated, being used as a residence' I would estimate the date between 1902 and 1906, when it was demolished to make room for the Renehan's Willows.  It must have been a Santa Fe hotspot, a rural retreat where one could have a beer overlooking the Santa Fe river, listen to live music and bowl in what I believe was Santa Fe's first bowling alley.
