Rules for guests in the Old West
Another interesting piece of historical information provided by the St. James Hotel in Cimarron, NM (which I reviewed yesterday) was this sheet of house rules from its early days. It made me both laugh and shake my head. Click the image for a larger view.
I'm not sure how authentic some of those rules were, but they certainly have the flavor of the Old West. As L. P. Hartley observed, "The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there."
