In 1933, Chicago held an exposition which celebrated the city's centennial and its "Century of Progress." A large number of canes were produced for this exhibition. This cane celebrated the end of prohibition and was made in several colors. The handle of the cane depicts a keg, with a glass directly below ready to hold the alcoholic beverage.
