View of the Past: Inside of a saloon in 1890’s O’Fallon

This week’s view is of the inside of a saloon in 1890’s O’Fallon.  While it’s unclear which one, it’s certainly typical of the era.  Back then, O’Fallon was still a village, not yet a city, with a population of 1100 and a bit of a western, rough edged flavor.
