Silver Dollar Saloon, Leadville CO

"The Dollar" is housed in the Clipper Building which was built in 1879.  It boasted of the first tile floor in Leadville at the time it was built and some remains intact.  The Clipper was another creation of architect King.  The Dollar has occupied this space since 1935 and is known for its ornate bar and rare diamond-dust mirrors.    The colorful photo is a closeup of the detail on the top of the building.

I imagine The Dollar has a great many tales to tell.  But maybe what happens in The Dollar, stays in The Dollar.
