American Dry Spell #21

Original Caption:

Los Angeles -- U.S. Federal Agents pour choice wines into the gutter in front of the Federal Building. 900 gallons of booze were destroyed. Street cars and automobiles splashed through the red stream as it flowed from the broken heads of the scores of barrels. Hundreds of "mourners" were on hand to parchingly witness the "interment" of "John Barleycorn." (1920)
