Men line up in front of the Government Liquor Store in Cloverdale, ca. 1926. According to the Surrey Historical Society, Americans would drive up the new highway to Cloverdale’s government liquor store during prohibition to get their alcohol. Canadian prohibition ended in 1920, and took place from 1920 to 1933 in the United States. (City of Surrey Archives/180.1.53)
