There were short flapper skirts and tall amounts of illegal drink orders.

The East Hampton Historical Society is displaying a Jazz Age East Hampton exhibit celebrating the Prohibition Era on the East End with a special tour by the society's director Richard Barons on Saturday, August 17, 2013, at The Clinton Academy Museum.

The "Clothes, Clubs and Contraband" have pieces from 1919 to 1933. The exhibit will feature a 70-year-old contraband bottle, a croquet set, photos and fashion all from the era of the East Hampton speakeasy. Special sections will highlight the Maidstone Park and the Ladies Village Improvement Society Fair.

The exhibition will be on display from Saturday, July 27 to Sunday, October 13, for free but donations are welcome. Saturday display hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday display hours are 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Clinton Academy Museum is located at 151 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information about The East Hampton Historical Society, visit them online at www.easthamptonhistory.org.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
