Shebeens in 1959 - Has much changed?

Liquor Licence -  We came across a very interesting article published by The Observer from their archives, dated 21 June 1959.   We thought LiquorWise members and readers of this Blog might enjoy it as well.   It was written about the phenomenon of Shebeens and the important role it played in the social and economic lives of black South Africans.    It provides a fascinating perspective, although it's also a grim reminder of life in that era.  To read the short article, click here.
