Spirited:  Prohibition in America on exhibit at Tampa Bay History Center

Step back in time when flappers and suffragists, bootleggers, and real-life legends Al Capone and Carry Nation took sides in the battle against the bottle.

Spirited: Prohibition in America, on exhibit for a limited time at the Tampa Bay History Center, explores the era when America went “dry.” Beginning with the dawn of the temperance movement, through the Roaring ’20s, to the unprecedented repeal of a constitutional amendment, Spirited brings the whole story of Prohibition vividly to life.

Spirited features more than 100 artifacts from the Prohibition era, including music and fashion, a bootlegger’s map and mug shots of notorious gangsters, vintage barware, advertising art and political propaganda, and interactive displays that allow visitors to explore both sides of the “wet” and “dry” issue.

Spirited: Prohibition in America is at the History Center through Monday, Oct. 20. Visit www.tampabayhistorycenter.org for more information.
