Prohibition ended in Washington, D.C. on March 1, 1934. The Washington Post reported that "Somehow, after 17 years without it, Washingtonians seemed to hold their liquor quite well." One reason might be that the nation's capital had been far from a model dry city, hosting up to 3,000 speakeasies since Prohibition began in 1917. As documented in a new book by Garrett Peck, even Congress had its own bootleggers, especially "The Man in the Green Hat." Speaker Biography: Garrett Peck is a literary journalist and the author of "The Prohibition Hangover: Alcohol in America from Demon Rum to Cult Cabernet." A native Californian and graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he lives in Arlington, Va.

Titles read: '1914 - Women's Prohibition Demonstration'. Location of events unknown - probably London. March in 1914 calling for prohibition during wartime. March is led off by a young men's marching band; and several men walk along in the march; but women are in the majority. Banners such as 'The British Lion is Awake. So is the Lioness.'; 'Women of Scotland Demand Prohibition During the War'; & one with a picture of a bottle on its side and 'SOS' - also looks like it says 'Britain's Baby Killer'. Crowd of spectators watch. Marchers also carry various flags; including many Japanese ones - don't know reason. (Could be symbol of temperance at this time? SL.) They weren't entirely successful; alcohol was never totally prohibited but the Defence of the Realm Acts - DORA - drastically shortened hours of pubs; and the King set an example of further sobriety by banning alcohol from the Palace. World War One; home front. 90,000 historic films, all SEARCHABLE on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/britishpathe Join us on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/britishpathe Tweet us @britishpathe FILM ID:2362.09
