I have been asked by a disabled charity who are putting on a show based in a western saloon, if i could advice them of the type of chairs that were used, as i know this site has a wealth of knowledge and good research skills, perhaps we might be able to help them with the type and any possible pictures. also if anyone knows where they can be hired from.

               Thanks in advance Papa.

 

I have suggested that they visit this site for advice.

Howdy papabear.......wow when I was a kid the town of Wisdom, Montana (I believe it would be more like a village as it is so small) had a bar (we call them bars here in Montana a term that came into being in the 20th century) that was right out of the old west......swinging batwing doors and the whole 9 yards. The chairs they had were the type with a sort of wraparound arm assembly that ended at the sides of the front. Dad blast it I know what they look like I just can not describe them. Unfortunately the original building burned down back in the late 60's and ALL furnishings were lost. The backs were a rounded piece of flat wood about an inch thick by about 2 or 3 inches wide. I'll see if I can find something online and post the site.

Some great taxidermy there !

 

The chairs are what we know as smokers chairs. Laredo has the hotel kitted out with them, it might be worth asking Joleene for some details.
