0097.0001: Prohibition - Stuffed pigs

Stuffed pigs Tete Jaune, B.C. 1913 Smuggled whiskey found by Provincial Police. Prohibition was an attempt to make illegal by law the distribution and sale of liquor, beginning in Canada in the late 19th century. Alberta passed prohibition laws in 1916 and repealed them in 1924. Prohibition was a political response to the temerance movement, and resulted in many ingenious ways of importing and distributing alcohol.
