    1 thought on “The Old-Time Saloon: Not Wet--Not Dry--Just History

    1. A quick read and a quick overview of the old time saloon It was to short and to overreaching to get into deeply.On my scale it rates a Meh

    2. Engaging storyteller and a fast read, but I had hoped for of an in depth description of the saloons Instead, there is focus on why the saloon was the true target of Prohibition, not alcohol.
