MOTIVES IN FOCUS - FORCES REQUIRE THESE DRINKS

Crayfish require these drinks!, the no-page's most famous election poster in connection with the referendum for alcohol bans in Sweden. The illustration was created by Albert Engström in 1922. An extremely exciting story and funny curiosity about which Swedes were allowed to buy the most alcohol and those who were not allowed to buy anything with the Bratt system between 1919-1955.
