I woke up.
Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.

General Sherman must have been a pool player. He destroyed most of Atlanta when he marched through Atlanta two years earlier. Look at the building next to the pool hall.

I guess the Union soldiers only spared it so they could have a place to drink and shoot pool.

Nice photo, OP.

I heard that when the picture was originally taken, two players simultaneously took up a game of one pocket, which is soon to come to a conclusion.

Be great to go back in time and shoot there - but I guess Marty McFly already did that.


Best always,
