    The Weaver Brothers Saloon in Summit County, Colorado, 1890. The majority of saloon drinkers drank either warm beer or straight liquor like rye or bourbon. In an effort to improve profits, bar staff often cut their liquor with ammonia, gunpowder or even cayenne pepper

    The Bob Saloon in Miles City, Montana, circa 1880. Life was hard on the frontier, so men had little to do after a hard day's work but drink and 'let loose' in their local saloon - even if that just meant having a few beers on the porch, as seen here

  15. I'll bet that was a lot more fun than having your wife drag you to a crafts fair like they want to do today!

  17. I used to have to take my wife to a crafts fair held once a yr around a small town square. Street parking was really bad, so I would drop her off as close to the square as I could get. Then I would have to look for a place to park 7-8 blocks away. I would walk back up to a nice beer garden set up every yr in an alley by some church group as a fund raiser (no such thing as sinful money, you know). When my wife was finished looking thru the crafts booths she would come to get me at the beer garden & we would walk to the car to go home.

    People facinate me. I enjoy the dedication
    they apply to their crafts. There's always
    something interesting and I apply it to
    my hobbies.

  20. We used to sell split white oak baskets at craft fairs in SW Missouri and SE Kansas as extra income back in the 1990s. Still have a few hundred of them in storage if anyone needs any.
