It's hard to imagine that a mining town can grow so quickly to such proportions. Also interesting that they say the women were among the big money-makers. A pity the article did not go into more detail (saloon girls, dance-hall girls, prostitutes,...).
It sure sounds like the boys' kind of place. 70 saloons, imagine all the poker games for Heyes...
"I can resist everything - except temptation" Oscar Wilde
For me temptation is Hannibal Heyes, especially in chaps!
