and... here are the final bottles.
tucking a hand written note card into each bottle wrapping.
(without the card)
each bottle is wrapped in a different newspaper day / headline, all on the topic of prohibition.
this one has a story of Jack Dempsey the heavyweight boxer...
...this one tells the story of a saloonkeeper breaking prohibition laws by offering bribes...
...it was easy to find articles about crime & politics during that era.
found some with stats on babe ruth (one headline reports that he'd lost 6 pounds.)
