Dawn’s Family Photo Archive - 1920’s Stag Party

Caption Reads: “Good Time Stag Party Given By Jefferson Growe -  163 Woodmen Circle -  Oct. 5, 1920” - Gelatin Silver print - scanned/edited for black and white tone

Fascinated by this photo I found in my personal family photo archive. I do not recognize any family members in the photo (however my great, great grandmother might be pictured - verifying later after publication). Being that this was right around the start of prohibition, I was curious to see people drinking openly but it is a “bachelor party” of that era. Upon closer look though, caps appear to be on most of the bottles so maybe the picture was taken as a “before” or taken as a joke to not capture any real illegalities since drinking laws were what they were then. Even so I wish I had more stories to go along with this fascinating look into the past. (and some of the faces captured!)
