Nice study of place with those muted colors and great leading lines/vanishing point.

Thank you very much, Minnie. I still enjoy going there for some food and a pint. There's one closer to where I live now, but I still like going to the original one every now and again.

What Minnie said, plus I love Cornish pasties! I do think it's interesting that there was mining in Arizona! I had no idea. I had to look it up. Having spent 30 years in California, with a keen interest in geology, I was very familiar with the fact that the Cornishmen turned up wherever there was hard rock mining, so I knew that if there was a pasty place in Arizona there had to have been hard rock mining, and Cornish settlement. I just for some reason did not expect it in Arizona. Dunno why. (?)

Chuck, actually it was simply a matter of a guy from Cornwall thought it'd be a good idea to open a pub that served pastys. Sure we did have some mining in Az., gold and copper that I know of. Copper was the more prevalent. However, good food is appreciated whether its origin was because of mining or not.

Thanks for taking a look and commenting.

Your welcome, but it's always been my understanding that guys from Cornwall tended to gravitate to places where there was mining because in Cornwall in the 19th century that was pretty much what everyone did, kind of like coal in West Virginia. The pasty was the staple, sent by the wives with their miners in special tin mess kits with two containers and a lid. Many had little tripod legs. The tea was in the lower compartment and the pasty in the upper. At lunch break the man would take his candle off his cap and put it beneath the messkit. The candle would reheat the tea and, in the process, warm up the pasty. Cornish miners in California brought with them the technology for the Cornish pump, a monster affair with a flywheel that could keep a deep mine dry. When the mines closed and the pumps stopped many of the mines flooded right up to the top of the water table. (Y)

Marvelous mood photo. Love the tones in the tables; you captured the wood superbly. I remember my first -- and last --pasty: Butte, MT. It had more fat and gristle than I could stomach. And I was warned to pronounce it the right way or the entire bar would roar at the rube from the East. I got it right because I knew it could be wrong. Matt

Matt, thanks for the compliment and the narrative. I can assure you, that would never be a problem with the Pasty Co. here. Rumor has it that Dean has purchased some property in the Boston area and is planning on opening one there, as well. I know how this works with Dean and it could be a while before it opens there.
Cheers,
Bob
