Law Abiding

This from 1920, the first year of Prohibition in the United States:

“Judging from loud voices heard on our village streets at a late hour some nights, some of the big quantity of cider made in this vicinity has fully ‘worked’ and capable of causing a real good jag and joyous shouts. As winter wears on, hard cider will be more and more in evidence. And it is hinted that some stronger beverages than cider can be obtained by those who have a desire and are willing to pay the price to satisfy the same.”

The Skaneateles Press, December 14, 1920
