"In St. Louis - It is illegal for an on-duty firefighter to rescue a woman wearing a nightgown. In order to be rescued, a woman must be fully dressed.

"In St. Louis - It's illegal to sit on the curb of any city street and drink beer from a bucket."

re: the first one, i can find out from my dad's friend, whose a fire department mother:

and as to the second one, i know that in the 50s, bars, especially german-american ones (as we would call them today) sold beer in little pails. my mother tells the story of how they would go down to some corner and pick it up to carry home to perhaps a grandfather, definitely germans. i don't think the kids drank any of it. so, i guess it's like our current open container bans.
