This is another photo stressing the prohibition era. The men in this photo had probably made the alcohol and were breaking many laws. Those who had done this in this period of time often sold the products to different suppliers. The alcohol for these man was a source of income. This photo captivated me because it seems like the men have a sense of family and belonging.

Prohibition in the 1920s did not stop people from buying, selling, or consuming alcohol. Illegally bootlegging made some people very rich.
