Notes on the Setting Edit

The prologue sequence features a man reading a newspaper on the trolley Tiana and her mother take home. The headline reads "Wilson Elected!!!" which places the prologue in the year 1912. With the rest of the film taking place in the 1920s one may note that prohibition is in full swing but was widely ignored in the south so Alcohol being served in various scenes (the riverboat, restaurant, and ball) isn't an anachronism so much as a reflection of New Orleans during that era.
