Prohibition newspaper from 1915...
Item # 562583
January 15, 1915
THE NEW REPUBLIC, Westerville, Ohio, January 15, 1915
* Prohibition newspaper
An interesting Prohibition newspaper from early in the 20th century. The content within these four pages have an overwhelming bias against the sale of alcohol in all forms.
This issue has a variety of Prohibition-related content, a cause which would win its fight in 1919 (effective in 1920), only to be ended in 1933.
The front page features a political cartoon headed: "Soothing The Savage Beast"
The inside and back pages have similar reports.
Complete in 4 pages, light browning, a bit moreso at the margins. Little margin wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
