Sept 7th, 2019 : Beerhops

Quote:
Its interesting to see how things had changed at the time this photo was taken in the mid-1930s after Prohibition which began in 1920, ended on December 5, 1933. At this roadside drive-in restaurant, a carhop served Magnolia Beer (note the sign at the far end of the building) that was kept in an attractive art deco cooler to patrons sitting in a Packard roadster.



One commenter mentioned carhops served beer in MS in the '60s. Magnolia Beer was brewed by the Galveston-Houston Breweries.
No idea how far their range extended but Id bet this is in Texas or close to it.

Aside:
Notice that the 1931 Packard has a radio antenna mounted under the running board so likely came with a radio.
Another reason to think it's Texas because everybody's rich down there.

"...it's Texas because everybody's rich down there."
I apologize for being the one exception to your rule-of-thumb.

But it might be Texas; a way to tell is if longhorn horns are mounted to the front of the hood, as required by law. The waiter is blocking the shot, so we can't be sure.

You too? I've got a cousin in Spring who isn't rich either, he's scared to death they'll find out and deport him back to MA.

Now I know for a fact not all cars have Longhorn horns on the front, my buddy in Rowlett and another in Weatherford use Bison horns.
