Great Prohibition Photo
I heard somewhere that just before the prohibition era started, adults in the USA consumed on average a fifth of whiskey every day. Considering many women didn't drink, that made it 2 fifths a day per adult male. That at least partially explains the movement to abolish alcohol, and the major backlash against those who tried to abolish it. Two things I do know - Boardwalk Empire is an amazing show, and this picture, courtesy of Complex is really funny!
