Print showing a young girl holding a glass of beer. Reads "We Want Beer" and "Repeal the 18th Amendment." Poster promotes the repeal of National Prohibition, aka the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and the return of legal beer in America.
During the 1930s, as the Great Depression wore on, a campaign to legalize beer gained momentum. It was believed that legalizing beer would create many new brewery jobs and stimulate government revenue in the form of beer taxes, both of which proved true after the 18th Amendment was repealed in 1933.
