The night they ended Prohibition, December 5th 1933

The night they ended Prohibition, December 5th 1933
Why are they with booze in their hands? A lot of places were secret bars with hatched that would drop the hidden whiskey into and underground corridor. They most likely had the booze in wait when it ended. As for other places, you most likely heard that the law was going to end in x-amount of days, so you had time to prepare. Most were speakeasies, since bars that decided to keep it legal had either turned into something else like a restaurant or whatever, since they can no longer sell their one important good.

Funny stuff:
After the 18th Amendmentwas repealed in 1933, Yuengling sent a truckload of "Winner Beer" to PresidentFranklin D. Roosevelt in appreciation, which arrived the day the amendment was repealed — particularly notable since Yuengling beer takes almost three weeks to brew and age.
