BIEBERSTEIN CHILDREN. Two children, probably brother and sister, stand far apart on the wide front steps of their porch at 1321 South Fourteenth Street, the home of Lillian Bieberstein (1879-1951) and her husband, Paul. The Biebersteins lived just around the corner from John Johnson's home at 1310 A Street, and Paul (1879-1959) operated a saloon less than a block from the Lincoln post office where Johnson worked. When Nebraska prohibited alcohol sales in 1917, two years ahead of the national Prohibition, Bieberstein switched to selling soft drinks, according to the city directory. <br />
