"Lips That Touch Liquor Shall Not Touch Ours" by 


Lips That Touch Liquor Must Never Touch Mine — the slogan of the Anti-Saloon League of the US temperance movement. A political statement with a very amusing image of ten women supporters of the Anti-Saloon League: the leading organization lobbying for prohibition in the United States in the early 20th century. Great college humor and a great gift for alcohol drinkers of all ages!
Assorted, funny greeting cards for any occasion or event for family, friends or business clients.
This picture is a still taken from a Movie made in the 1890′s by Thomas Edison in his New Jersey studio called the Black Maria – the world’s first movie production studio. The first films shot at the Black Maria, a tar-paper-covered, dark studio room with a retractable roof, included segments of magic shows, plays, vaudeville performances (with dancers and strongmen), acts from Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, various boxing matches and cockfights, and scantily-clad women. So here we have a very early example of the media manipulating an image for their own ends!

    “Lips That Touch Liquor Shall Not Touch Ours” was the Slogan of the “ASL”:
    From 1893 to 1933, the Anti-Saloon League was a major force in American politics. Influencing the United States through the printed word and lobbying, it turned a moral crusade into a Constitutional amendment. Its triumph was nationwide prohibition locked into the Constitution with passage of the 18th Amendment in 1920. It was decisively defeated when prohibition was repealed in 1933.
