The Real Faces of Prohibition-Era Philadelphians

In order to promote the National Constitution Center's exhibit called "American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition," the Greater Philadelphia Tourism and Marketing Corporation (GPTMC) thought it would be fun to take some photos of models in 1920s-era clothing from various clothing boutiques in the city. While the photos are lovely, we thought you might want to see what Philadelphians really looked like during Prohibition.
