Cover art work by Antonio Petruccelli The magazine’s advertising reflects the end of prohibition (December 5, 1933): ads for Pabst Blue Ribbon, Gilbey Gin, Johnny Walker, Vat 69, Booth’s Gin, Teacher’s Whiskey, Martini Vermouth, and various other brands. All reflect the end of "dry America." The ad for Hennessy, seeming to exhale deeply for all those involved, announces: "So we can be ourselves once more!" Bottoms up! Item #27037
