Peaky Blinders

Episode #2.1 - S2-E1

Question: In the street scene with the three brothers leaving in a car for London, the car has 'Fiat' the grille. In the next scene with the car, there is nothing on the grille. Could they have had this car, at that time? After all there was mention of 'Bugatti' at least he beginning of the same episode. Would a Lanchester made in Sparkbrook be more likely?

Episode #2.2 - S2-E2

Question: Was there prohibition in England? If not, why was Alfie running an underground distillery using a bakery as a cover instead of just having a legit distillery?

Answer: There has never been prohibition in England. There are many reasons for running an underground distillery. It would be a way to avoid things like government regulations, safe distilling methods, alcohol content limits, taxation, fix pricing, and so on.
