Prohibition Pittsburgh


Don't miss this upcoming event!




Presented by author Richard Gazarik

Prohibition in Pittsburgh brought crime and corruption and introduced organized crime to the region. Crusading journalist Walter Ligget said Pittsburgh was so corrupt that he dubbed the city the "Metropolis of Corruption." There was so much illicit liquor made it in Pittsburgh that it was "wet enough for rubber boots" and the Downtown was known as the "great wet way." Prohibition existed only on paper because an unholy alliance existed between bootleggers, police and politicians. 

Perhaps the era can best be summed up this way:

Prohibition is an awful flop,
We like it
It can't stop what its meant to stop
We like it
It's left a trail of graft and slime,
It's filled our land with vice and crime,
It don't prohibit worth a dime,
Nevertheless, we're for it.

The book Prohibition Pittsburgh is available at Barnes and Noble and Giant Eagle in addition to Amazon
