Protesting a ban on women smoking, 1922, Chicago.
Chicago Tribune Archives original caption:
"Alderman Lyle of Chicago recently introduced an ordinance prohibiting women of Chicago from smoking in public. Quite a number of Chicago women invaded the Aldermanic Council Chambers and presto, first thing Alderman Lyle knew he was enveloped in a halo of smoke right in the aldermanic room which almost suffocated him. The women just voiced their protest and that was all there was to it."
