1 photomechanical print : offset, color.
Illustration shows an old woman labeled "Prohibition" and holding an umbrella labeled "Intolerance", standing between two sluices that power waterwheels; she is holding a board in the shape of the U.S. Capitol labeled "Politics" in one sluice blocking the water to the waterwheel on the right, which has paddles labeled "Goodfellowship, Recreation, Temperance, Discipline, [and] Health" and runs past "The Closed Canteen"; on the left, water labeled "U.S. Army" flows through a sluice and over a waterwheel with paddles labeled "Drunkenness, Immorality, Disorder, Vice, Disease, [and] Gambling", that runs past "The Blind Tiger" and "The Open Dive" where a man labeled "Divekeeper" is carrying a bag of "The Grist of Vice". Puck calls Prohibition's attention to the problems resulting from closed canteens.
