Advocates of Prohibition believed its passage in 1920 would usher in a new era of healthy living, family harmony and political integrity. In fact, the drinks kept flowing, and Prohibition fuelled the growth of organised crime and political corruption. Speakeasies sprouted by the thousands, cultivating jazz music, dance crazes and the rise of the flappers – young women who embraced bold fashions and liberated behaviour. Mobsters profited, while paid-off police and politicians looked the other way. Raise a glass to the past, drink what they drank and remember – you were never here.
