In the Southern Appalachian Mountains people living here are of pure Anglo-Saxon stock. They believe they have the right to make corn liquor or "Moonshine" and in a remote section our photographer ran into the one portrayed on this card. Had he been carrying a gun instead of a camera there may have been one photographer less and no picture, as these moonshiners fear and hate "revenuers" and would not hesitate to shoot one. This man willingly posed for the picture. In making moonshine it is necessary to have cold water, and as you can see there is an oversupply available here.
