On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution ended what had been called America’s “noble experiment.” The experiment was Prohibition – a nationwide ban on the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages. The ban had been in place for nearly 14 years.
This is another photo stressing the prohibition era. The men in this photo had probably made the alcohol and were breaking many laws. Those who had done this in this period of time often sold the products to different suppliers. The alcohol for these man was a source of income. This photo captivated me because it seems like the men have a sense of family and belonging.
