The Science of Prohibition

Popular Science has a gallery of articles the magazine published during Prohibition addressing alcohol, the laws against it, and the ways people got around those laws. Some read like “how to” guides, and some detail law enforcement methods as if warning people how to avoid getting caught. This “scientific” look at how stills work was full of disclaimers, of course, warning about the illegality of distilling spirits or even owning parts of a still. Link -via TYWKIWDBI
