My step brother lived in Montezuma Colorado.......I believe the highest town in America......would never know now there was saloon of that size.but of course back in the "boom days" there was probably several. Thnaks Steve for sharing.

One must wonder had they a piano one might expect the place to be famous for it's "Looney Toons".
Town Elevation: 10335 feet while Leadville Colorado is 10,152 feet ........

However above Montezuma just below timberline 11,500 is some great little beaver ponds with some fun Brookie fishing......wonder what it was like in the 1880's?

Slot machines, "pokies" or "fruit machines" have been around since the late 1880's...making this photo late in the 1880's........or later.

They have some of the same features of wood burners of the period.
