You know you are in Belmont when you pass Dirty Dick’s. It is one of only a couple of businesses in town and the first one you see after the long drive from Manhattan, or Tonopah, or wherever.
In my research for the trip, I found a photo of the inside of the saloon along with a short writeup of the place. It sounded like it had a lot of character and I was looking forward to a short visit. Unfortunately, Dirty Dick’s was closed on te day I visited Belmont.
Based on saloon’s hours of operation, prominently posted on a sign next to the door, i caught the place on a rare off day.
The sign is obscured by the post in the photo above, but I grabbed a shot of it with my iPhone (below).
I’ll be winding up a week of Belmont (and one Manhattan) photos tomorrow with one of my favorite shots from the trip — a panorama Belmont Ghost Town Panorama.
