Volstead Trading Company

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Volstead Trading Company'. The project description reads:

The Volstead Trading Company is a concept devised by a few Christchurch locals to create an environment for social interaction that contradicts the traditional bar scene. With a focus on exclusivity, subtlety and a relaxed atmosphere, The Volstead Trading Co. is bringing back the glory days of the 1920's speakeasy, a bar for those in the know, away from the common scene.The bar is ironically named after Andrew Volstead, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in the United States of America, who pushed through the 'National Prohibition Act' banning the sale, supply and consumption of alcohol nationwide on 28 October 1919.
