This picture was taken in 1939 in Fairfield, Montana. It shows a Pool Hall and an old water pump out front. When I was growing up, our little town had a pool hall, but it was not a place respectable people went. I am not sure what it was about pool that was not respectable. I don't know if pool halls had a bad reputation in other parts of the country, but where I grew up, you were told to never go in the pool hall.
