Lips That Touch Liquor Shall Not Touch Ours

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!

Source – Listed by the National Park Service archives as "Caption: Movie Still, “Lips That Touch Liquor Shall Not Touch Ours.” in the Black Maria; Unknown Date
Thomas Edison’s Black Maria studio dates the picture back to 1893-1901 when the studio was in operation. This image is thereby in the public domain because its copyright has expired.

Not a terribly effective deterrent….
