People of New York celebrate the end of the Prohibition with beer, 1933. The repeal was a political platform for Franklin D. Roosevelt, who signed the Cullen-Harrison Act into law on March 22, 1933, allowing the first legal sale of beer since the beginning of Prohibition. The 21st amendment was ratified on Dec. 5 1933, which repealed Prohibition. (Getty Images)
