No western billiard saloon such as mine would be complete without spittoons. I have a number of old pictures of bars and billiard saloons. Notice on the floor by the stand-up bar in the picture above there is a spittoon. There are towels hanging below the bar. These are call mustache towels. When you spit your tobacco, you then wipe your mouth on the towel. Not to appealing in today’s world in more ways than one. A good way to get Covid don’t you think. I would love to have enough room one day for a stand-bar like this in my next billiard room.
