Black and White Christmas -- December 24, 2019

Richmond Times-Dispatch, 25-December-1919
Happy Christmas, everyone. This cartoon from the 25-December-1919 Richmond Times-Dispatch refers to Prohibition and the shortages of coal and sugar during the Christmas season.  The United Mine Workers went on strike on 01-November-1919.  Sugar had been short throughout the war.  Some people blamed the continuing shortage on Prohibition.
