Please. As we celebrate Independence Day if you drink don’t drive. Drink responsibly. Last time I looked this was still a free country, so if you do drink I hope that you will take a moment to reflect on the two fellows in this photo that we simply call “Moonshiners“. Photo was taken somewhere in Appalachia c.1926. Maybe the exact location is better left unknown so as to protect their operation. Note the pistol in the waistband of the fellow on the right. Required film on the subject of moonshine is “Lawless” (2012). Art imitating life to be sure.
DPI has more moonshine photos in our 1930s collection.
