Anti-prohibition postcard


In this 1914 postcard, a cartoon of a member of the 'Prohibition Party' (Henry George Ell) looks down on the tiny figure of the NZ Voter; beside him is a pathway 'To Gloom' with an illicit still in the distance. Below are instructions urging voters to mark their ballot papers in favour of national and local continuance.
