Prohibition Era

Taken in New York, NY USA in .

Agents pouring liquor down a sewer during the Prohibition era. New York City Deputy Police Commissioner John A Leach is watching while it looks like a man in the back is stealing liquor from a box! This was following a raid - probably on a speakeasy.
