Saloon Tour - Rambo's Saloon

Dublin Core

Description

Captain Roy Hall gives us a glimpse inside Rich Rambo’s saloon. In 1952, Hall wrote an article for The Courier-Gazette remembering the time he went into Rambo’s saloon as a boy with his father. He describes Rich as the “prince among gentlemen” for not only selling whiskey but also having lemonade on hand for children. Upstairs was the gambling hall with men playing cards and a green-covered table surrounding by many rolling dice. He continues the story by saying his father allowed him to throw the dice winning up to $32 when another gambler said he needed to stop while he was ahead.
