Exhibit shows Tampa's spirited Prohibition history

TAMPA — The Tampa Bay History Center's new exhibit, "Spirited: Prohibition in America," features more than 100 artifacts from the Prohibition era, including music and fashion, bootlegger's map and mug shots of notorious gangsters, advertising art and political propaganda, and interactive displays with 1920s dance music and more.

The center added a little local flavor to the exhibit by including items for Tampa's storied prohibition history, including the 1928 Hillsborough County Jail Registry, bottles from the Florida Brewery and the White Rose Saloon and Prohibition-era menus from the Tampa Bay Hotel.

The exhibit runs through Oct. 20.

Visit tampabayhistorycenter.org for more information and to find several prohibition-themed events planned at the center.
