From the Mid-Week Pictorial, Jennie MacGregor, scooped up by the Minneapolis police on April 10, 1924 for “dispensing wet goods” from her bootlegger’s life preserver. Its caption was headed with “A Perfect 36” — perhaps a reference to Tennessee, the 36th state to ratify the 19th Amendment, granting women’s suffrage? Photo: The New York Times
It doesn’t appear this photo was used in the Minneapolis Journal. We did find a short article about Jennie on the front page of the April 10, 1924, evening edition. Jennie MacGregor, aged 24 was arrrested at 1401 8th Street South, which was a duplex at the time. Each copper container had a one gallon capacity.
