Unfortunately Hyman's Saloon has had a really bad face lift since he owned it and that door is much later.The original facade was extensively glazed originally with a large plate glass window to the left and two pairs of double doors to the right.Gary Robert's DOC HOLLIDAY A great read by the way- has an 1880's photo of the building.If you check out the website oldpokerchips.com they have this photo on site as well as cigar box art for Anona cigars,his own brand.If I was to interpret the double double doors I'd say that one pair led directly into the saloon and the other set into a seperate smoker's cabinet room which was pretty common in 19th century saloons.That way women and some men who wouldn't be caught dead in a saloon could avail themselves of the tobacco room.
I haven't been back there for some years now.It's nice to see more recent photos and some fresh sprucing and paint on some of the buildings.Thanks for sharing these photos.
Your welcome Anthony, I enjoy going to the old town, it has a personallity all of its own, Glad they dont rely on the mine as much and have the attitude the town will always be there
