Domino Hall



Today's picture shows a Domino Hall in Sebastian, Texas. The picture was taken in 1939. There was a domino hall in the little town I grew up in, and it was definitely not a place you were supposed to go to. Alcohol was not served there, but people did bet on games, and the language was strong.

  1. When I was in the Army quite a few of us played dominoes. Some times alcohol and strong language were involved.

  2. My Australian grandfather taught my cousins and me how to play dominoes. A great way to pass an afternoon , and there was no strong language or alcohol involved. I still play it with the grandkids.

  3. Funny I have never thought of dominoes as a grown up game, being something I only played as a child.

  4. When we were kids we got a box of 60 or so that belonged to an older cousin. It was years before we learned there was an actual GAME you could play with them. We used them to build stuff, and the ever-popular set em up and knock em down rows we laid out on the hardwood floor.

    1. And you'd get them halfway set up and one would fall and you had to start from the beginning again. That was where the strong language came in - words such as drat and dang and dagnabbit.
