Montana towns – This Harlowton street scene is a window into the past. Saloons, “rooms,” and a pool hall at “The Club” offering 5-cent beer are visible as well as a barber shop, a tin shop, and a specialty diamond and watch store, complete with a large clock on the sidewalk made to look like a pocket watch. The time is about a quarter past eight in the morning, and merchants appear ready for business.
