Seth Kinman’s Drinking Establishment (1889)

Bears and elk died so that Seth Kinman could decorate his California bar.

I already posted a story about the rugged nineteenth-century hunter and chair maker Seth Kinman. The classic 1889 photograph above is a look at the eccentric interior of his bar in Table Bluff, California, which filled with whiskey many a Humboldt County sawmill employee.


Seth Kinman’s great great grandchildren display some of his memorabilia.
