Caption: North Sea liquor smuggling. 19th-century artwork of men in fishing boats trading liquor while out on the open reaches of the North Sea. Fishermen such as these would be stopped and searched by customs officials on their return. Illegal smuggling via North Sea fishermen was an attempt to evade the taxes levied by many countries on the trade of such goods. This engraving dates from 1888.
