Lifestyle during the prohibition era of the 1920's-30's

What was the prohibition?

The prohibition occurred on January 16, 1920, when the 18th amendment was ratified. This made alcoholic beverages illegal, yet underground establishments and private bars still served people.

The End of Prohibition

In 1933, the 21st amendment was ratified, which repealed the 18th, therefore legalizing the manufacturing and sale of liquor. By 1966, all of the states had returned back to normal sale and consumption of liquor.
