Turn Arounds - Prohibition
A scenario for at least one of the Revenuer’s, (the Government Agents) in Minot: When his car arrived at their destination there was a “turn around” in the garage . The “Turn Around” was a very large motor driven turn table. Upon driving into the garage, the car would drive onto the “turn around” and the vehicle was turned around so it was facing the same direction it had entered from. This way it could make for a hasty exit without having to back out of the garage. The car could just drive straight out, often in hot pursuit of a bootlegger.
