Question of the day: What in God’s name is making these men smile?
Pictured is a bunch of men pouring out huge bottles of bootleg spirits into the gutter in 1931. Awful as bathtub gin was during Prohibition, the glee at so much hooch going down the drain seems… strange.
They are smiling so much because they already poured the gin into another tank. I’m guessing this is water they are pouring out.
That makes a certain amount of sense. Even today, you can’t capture smells in a picture.
