The Prohibition

During the 1920's when the sale, transportation and drinking of alcohol became illegal. This image shows the police poring the alcohol down the sewer to show how strict they were on the ban of alcohol.
Even though it had became illegal to drink, sell or transport alcohol many people still did and this is where Al capone rose and became a well known notorious gangster who smuggled alcohol across the boarder bribing the police in the process so he could. Then selling it to secret underground pubs.

I could use the prohibition as a focal point to make either protest banners against the drinking ban or some sort of poster either prasing what Al capone did or against.
