Prohibition vase

James brings home all sorts of junk but the other day he actually brought home a pretty neat piece of junk. A contractor friend found a whole heap of these jugs in an old basement they uncovered while building a school over in Helena. They guy went to the courthouse to see who might have owned the property when it had a cellar full of liquor jugs and he found out that there was a liquor store there before prohibition. It appears the owner continued his sales through the prohibition from his cellar. It makes a lovely vase huh?
