History of Whiskey

Staged photo depicting the history of the Gallon House covered bridge between the cities of Mount Angel and Silverton Oregon. Mount Angel was a "wet" town and Silverton was a "dry" town and locals would meet to exchange whiskey at the bridge. Of course to every prohibition was opposition, which is why I'm holding the "drink milk, it's good for you" sign.
