This is a great occupational image that dates from about 1900- 1910. It shows the interior of a bar with a large billiard table.

There are many interesting items on the wall (one has a date of 1902 or 1907) and behind the wall including a large stuffed animal.

I don't have any idea of the location but it is very typical of what would have been found throughout the US at this time period.

    Thanks sign-- it is one heck of a bar. I wonder how many of these were lost/ destroyed over the last 100 years.

  3. scottvez scottvez, 2 years ago

    Would love to find vintage brass rails like those in your picture for my basement bar. Great photo, thanks for sharing!

    Glad you like it! I suspect a lot of this found its way to the scrap yards-- esp during the WW2 metal drives.

    A lot of brass trench art from WW1 met a similar fate.

    I noted your interest's include old photography/militaria.. I may post a few old ww2 pictures I have that include G.I.'s posing in old Japanese airplanes (mid 40's) and a jeep being driven down the steps of an old stone Japanese temple. Let me know if your interested in seeing them.
  14. scottvez scottvez, 1 year ago
    Sure-- I would like to see the photos. Give me a heads up once you have posted them.

  15. Blackshiep1 Blackshiep1, 1 year ago
    Popped up a couple pics, let me know what you think.
