Friday Fun-

I was going through my archive of old illustrations from books we have sold and ran across this one today. It pictures the main street of a well-known American city as it appeared around 1850 or so. Any ideas what city that is?



Here's a hint- anyone see any bars anyhwere???

Hmmm, let's zoom in-


Nope, not a bar in sight. Some things never change...

Oh for Christ's sake, it has to be somewhere in Utah.

Good answer. In fact, it is downtown Salt Lake City.

The wagon is probably full of wives, not whiskey.

Yeah, it pretty much looks the same today. I did find that SLC has a few bars and even a couple of "gentlemen's clubs." At those places, you get three strippers for the price of one. It's the Mormon way.
