If you're interested in the early days of the American saloon, then look no further than American Saloons, Pre-Prohibition Photographs. Not since my first sold out book, Saloons, Bars, and Cigar Stores, has there been a better, more comprehensive compilation of American saloon photographs. American Saloons, Pre-Prohibition Photographs is a fine, embossed hardbound book that contains over 345 pages of over 200 photographs and commentary. The book measures 9 by 12, and most of the photographs fill up the entire page. The book's eleven chapters each focus on different aspects of the American saloon, from the exteriors with their vintage signage and early automobiles to their interiors with amusement machines, front bars, rough characters, and taxidermy. Other chapters focus on the various coin-operated slot machines, venders, and gambling machines that were ubiquitous with the old American bar. Another chapter focuses exclusively on the bar scene “South of the Border-The 1920’s” that thrived during America's flirtation with the 18th Amendment. Many of the businesses featured in the book have been located and some still stand to this day! If you have any interest in vintage Western Americana, then this book is a must have. It's a perfect step back in time, allowing for a visual journey to a wonderful, bygone era.Each item ships out brand new, directly from the author. All items will ship out via USPS Media Mail.
