    Here is a Model A Ford on E. Allen St. in front of the Oriental Saloon, Tombstone Arizona, in 1932. Wyatt Earp dealt Faro in the Oriental in 1880, and was owned by him, a Mr. Clark, and a Mr. Rickabaugh. I am including a photo of their business card as well (with Wyatt's name misspelled). Descendants of Mr. Rickabaugh, who was also known as Wild Dave Rudabaugh, are good friends of mine here in Portland, OR.

    The Oriental Saloon still stands.

        Right. Arizona didn't become a state till 1912. I thought there might be another A there, but couldn't tell for sure. Good eye.

      I was there in late '59 or early '60. Don't think it looked quite as spiffy then as it does in the picture in post #3
