The corner of Anthony and Wayne, early 1900s

We don’t have a year for this one — all we know is that it was taken “around the turn of the last century” — but the location and the building are still recognizable some 100 years later. Now the location of the Sports and Spirits Bar, the original establishment was partitioned as a grocery store and a saloon owned by the Relue family.

Occasional FWR writer Jim Mount sent us this one, and he got it from Adam Relue, a co-worker of Jim’s at Hall’s Gashouse. Relue’s grandfather founded the establishment you see here. So, thank you Adam and Jim.
