A photo from about 1934 of the “Beer Garden” in Loyalton, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. This business was a later addition to the building that housed the Etzweiler-Helt General Store on the corner of the Crossroads (Oakdale Forge Road) and Main Street in Loyalton.
After 5 December 1933 when Prohibition was repealed by the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, states were permitted to regulate the sale of alcoholic beverages and local communities were allowed to decide whether they wanted to be “wet” or “dry.” Loyalton apparently decided to be “wet” as evidenced by the photo above.
Pictured in the photo are: Albert Enders, bartender; Al Rowe; and ——?—–.
Corrections and additional information should be added as comments to this post.
