Applesauce! Did ya hear what happened to old bobby!?
Yeah! Somebody bumped him off!
No more alcohol!No more saloons!
The Roaring Twenties were a time of wild changes and new inventions, a time of social, economic, and cultural change
I'm gonna take that flat tire for a ride...
One of these wild changes was prohibition which outlawed the selling and consumption of alcohol, the problem was, many Americans still wanted to drink alcoholic beverages
The solution was bootlegging, and from bootlegging came illegal bars, organized crime, murder, and much more
These illegal bars were called speakeasies, they were highly successful hubs for flappers, bold and independent women of the 1920's, gangsters, and the rich (among these were many others)
The bootlegging business thrived as figures like Al Capone made millions upon hundreds of millions of dollars selling alcohol across the nation and beyond
The main goal of prohibition was to improve society by banning alcohol, but because it couldn't really be enforced, quite the opposite happenedEventual, Prohibition was shut down by the 21st amendment and live went on in America
