Bar scene from the early coal boom days in Missouri. My old Auntie thinks the one of the gentlemen posing is probably the mayor and aldermen. They sure don't look very friendly!

    Love the photo on the right-- with the spittoons on the floor!

    Looks like guy to the far right in the front is the local law (badge on his chest).

    The name of the place is there.Photo # 2, all the way back-- Can anyone read backwards? I can but my eyes will not accommodate the letters well--
    What about the big sign left that has the number 12 in it??(also photo#2,)
  10. Beantighe, 2 months ago
    I cropped from the full res. file and reversed to read the window. I can't make out the last word. It looks like the sign says "we close at 12 o'clock tonight"

    William Halsbach..?
  12. Beantighe, 2 months ago
    That's what it looks like. I will have to ask an old timer if the name rings a bell.

    The only thing I find is a William Halsbach was replaced as the Post Master in a town in Penn...
