Prohibition Agents Destroy a Bar in 1930

During America's Prohibition Era, the federal government made it illegal for anyone to make, distribute, sell or consume alcoholic beverages.

People, everywhere, flagrantly ignored the law.

Prohibition agents, employed by the U.S. government, would search-out and arrest law breakers. If agents found liquor in bars, they would destroy what they found.
