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.

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.

That must be the place where you bought your first Lucasi cue.
There were no electronic stores back then and you had to get one somewhere

He destroyed everything except pool halls and masonic lodges!

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