Temple & Broadway: 1930's Los Angeles.....Note the "Prohibition" sign. The amendment prohibiting liquor lasted from 1919 until 1933. The sign was on the Women's Christian Temperance Building. The WCTU was a principal backer of Prohibition. The building was dedicated in 1888. The top floors were removed after being damaged in the '33 quake (originally 4 or 5 stories).
