Citizen's Bank of Victor

Citizens Bank, Victor, CO.
"As I sold newspapers on the street, I was often in Johnny Nolan's saloon, where I sometimes sold all my papers. It was not an uncommon sight to see ten- and twenty-dollar gold pieces piled high in the center of the round, green cloth-covered tables. Of course, there were many stacks of silver dollars. Hard money was always used when the games of chance were in vogue." __ William W. Wardell, from an article titled "Cripple Creek Memories," in "Colorado Magazine," 1960.
