By 1963 the hats were gone & you couldn’t hardly find an honest game.

You want to shoot a few games then & put a little money on it?

Here’s an earlier 1890’s pic I couldn’t get to load earlier. Note the gas lights.

Those sure look like billiards tables, not pool. My dad’s family had one in a shed attached to their house. It was still there when I was in high school, now somewhere in my cousin’s “holdings.”

Tombstone, AZ is not the only town laying claim to Helldorado Days. Starting in 1935 Las Vegas has held Helldorado Days including a parade every yr except for ~8 yrs starting in the late 1990’s.
