    Somehow computers can identify colors from black and white photographs.

    It's a stretch to imagine whiskey as being brown....

    I have one of these.

    It's from 1976.

    It's a centennial version 1876 - 1976.

    I should check it out and see if it's worth anything.

    It's just like this one but, mine is in a little better shape.

    We will look back on marijuana prohibition someday the same and realize how pointless it was, hopefully.

    It's interesting that in a time when women were demanding the right to vote, shorter bathing suits and equal rights that another group of women were so convinced that alcohol was evil.

    I know this will never happen again, but boy would I stockpile the liquor if I knew it was coming. Can't explain my current stockpile reason. :oops:

    I wonder if Lemp Brewery would still be in business if it weren't for prohibition.

    I think the women who thought it was evil and started these groups, were the women whose husbands either beat them while drunk or spent most of the family pay check on booze at the bar every week. :dontknow:

    I agree with this. Imagine how much worse they were treated on those weeks the husbands couldn't find any illegal liquor.
