Cops and doctors.

Purely to satisfy themselves that this place was selling alcohol of course. One has to believe that being a prohibition agent was an excellent way to sample the distiller's arts during the Great Experiment.

This looks a lot like my watering hole.

Well, with the deer head, anyway.

Vanwall said...

So, are the coppers as prevalent there, too? Makes a man choosy of where he partakes.

They only poke their head in the door from time to time.

Ah, one of the perks...free samples. (Of course, there was always the chance that this wasn't good liquor, and perhaps an agent or two went blind from the stuff.)
