Saloons: Rise and Fall of the “Ladies’ Entrance”

Shackamaxon Street and E. Girard Avenue, April 15, 1901 (PhillyHistory.org)

    Saloons: Rise and Fall of the "Ladies' Entrance"
    "Sloughing against the bar with one foot on the rail would have been unthinkable behavior for most 'decent' women, let along spitting into the cuspidors or allowing their skirts to trail in the beer-soaked sawdust," wrote Madelon Powers. "For some women even entering a bar is a fearful prospect," agreed Mary Jane Lupton in Feminist Studies.

    A real beer drinker's town since the very beginning, Philadelphia has played - and still plays - a crucial role in American brewing. In the past year-and-a-half alone, small to larger breweries have tremendously grown Philadelphia's craft brewing scene. Philadelphia's well-established players have expanded into both exciting new digs ( Yards) and experimental upstarts ( Fermentery Form, Roy-Pitz Barrel House).
