Gay 90's - Restaurant Row, Beverly Hills, CA

The Gay 90's saloon was opened in partnership with a man named Charles Deering McCornick, the heir to the International Harvester fortune. The saloon was a smashing success, with people always lined up outside waiting to get in. Deering later bought up the other half of the saloon and owned it for a number of years after. Cummins then opened the Roaring 20's next door, in what had formerly been a very nice Huddle-owned dinner house called Bob Dalton's. The long bar shown at the bottom of the photo was covered with silver dollars embedded in plastic. Paul bought the bar somewhere in Arizona. Unfortunately, when the room was very crowded, some of the customers would dig the silver dollars out of the plastic.
