A Picture story: Back from long war service to the old home city that had nine to nine beer when he last knew it, a post-war John Citizen finds things puzzling, tough. He reads that despite ample malt, hops, labour here, total beer gallonage is “restricted merely to prevent Western Australia being better served than Eastern States”; he reads the Premier’s statement that sufficient beer could be made here to increase hotel supplies . . . None of which helps him, however, as he sets out for a few quick ones in comfort and perhaps a bottle or so for the people coming to bridge tonight.
