American Old West Saloons - #25 In a Series



When this picture was taken in 1919, the last standing structure in Teller, Colorado was the former saloon and dance hall. Standing out front, Mr. & Mrs. William Kerr and their son. Mr. Kerr had been one of the original stake holders back in 1879 when the mining boom first started.

they are looking back forty years at a "bygone era". when i look back to 1971 it still carries so much fo the energy that it did then. the buildings are still here, the music, the art, even the people. hmmm. steven

Looks like the bones of a land-locked leviathan, looking down on "all who are proud".
