According to most historians, prohibition was a tool for the powerful white majority against the inferior poor, immigrants, and African American population. Yet, a recent scholarship by Mark Lawrence Schrad questions this premise and propose that the American temperance movement was rather part of the transnational progressive movements of the nineteenth century, it stemmed from the same impulses as that of abolition, labour rights, suffragism, and anti-colonialism. This paper is an attempt to study the perception of Temperance movement through analyzing cartoons and advertisements from the three magazines published between 1900-1920.
