Charlie Gibson was a famous illustrator in 1890′s New York. Made famous for his Gibson girl, an illustration sketch that ran in the press for almost 20 years. She was classed as the pin up of American beauty of the time. When Charlie had a glass in his hand rather than his mighty pen it was full of gin. He famously challenged Charley Connolly at the Players bar New york to better his martini. Connolly added two “voluptuous” onions to a stick and changed Gibsons martini for life.
