This page is part of a multi-tour visit with Walt and Hazel:

The walls of the inner courtyard are covered with murals of western characters and themes. I clicked my camera as I panned the central mural from left to right. You will recognize many of the characters and a few of the actors who played them.

This room is filled with interesting artifacts. This dentist chair and drill caught my eye.
The wheel and foot pedal at lower right drives the cord that spins the drill. I remember those slow-speed drills -- shudder.

Dick and Walt lean against an ornate bar where Randolph Scott may have hoisted a few for the camera.

Mannequin of Billy the Kid even looks like he's crazy.

Walt and I snap each other in the outer courtyard after our tour.

Closer view -- still good looking chicks!
