Today’s the 80th anniversary of the repeal of the 18th amendment, which outlawed the production and sale of alcohol. Here’s Wilmington’s once thriving Hartmann & Fehrenbach brewery in 1932, driven out of business by Prohibition. The brewery was located at Scott St. and Lovering Ave. in Wilmington. The building that currently houses Gallucio’s Restaurant is all that’s left of the brewery complex.
