A boot hooch flask during Prohibition. This lady is demonstrating how to store your flask - this is during the 3rd year of Prohibition. What I find really interesting is the design on the floor - it's a swastika before the rise of the Third Reich. Of course, the swastika is an ancient symbol but after the Nazi's hijacked it, I wonder if the tile remained?
