As 2011 comes to a close and we ring in 2012, here’s an interesting piece of New Year’s Eve/Prohibition memorabilia.
This is a poster promoting a New Year’s celebration at a speakeasy.
The soiree was held to ring in 1928.
The location, however, is unknown as the consumption of alcohol was banned at this time in U.S. history.
So only those ‘in the know,’ knew where to go.
My hunch is this flyer is a reproduction.
I base it on condition (nearly flawless) and there’s a copyright (see photo 3).
Unfortunately, I don’t know anything else about it.
If any MVG fans know more please contact us, we’d love to know more.
In the meantime, a happy and healthy New Year to all!
