    OCCIDENTAL SALOON - RENO, NEVADA - BOUDOIR CARD - ca. 1885-95. This is a great image of a saloon interior that has a period ink identification written on the back, "E.R. Wayland - Clerk - Occidental - Reno, Na." The image shows the bar's decorations, spittoons, stove, and liquor bottles. The bartender is behind the bar with a waiter and another man standing in front, there are two women to the rear of the bar and one may be wearing an apron, which suggests that she is not a "dance hall" girl. The boudoir card measures 8.5"x 5.25". The tone and contrast are good, with some spotting in the middle to the bottom. There is a break in the card to the top right that has been secured with thin cardboard pasted on to the back. Overall this is a great Saloon or Nevada image with a nice look.
