efore my father passed away we had plans to build a miniature replica of Jeff Smith's Parlor. We drew up the plans but never got around to actually working on it. I still have the plans and notes tucked away so perhaps one day I just might finish that project.
In the mean time how about a kit I found on eBay for the front of Clancy's Saloon where Soapy Smith supposedly started in Skagway, Alaska. We know that the brothers Clancy and Soapy did become partners. I imagine that eventually someone will come out with a kit for Jeff Smith's Parlor. If you wander over to the eBay link you will note that it comes minus the Clancy sign. That is just my quick fun art for the day. Compare the photo of the kit above with a photograph of the real Clancy's and you can see they did not do such a bad job.
|The real McCoy|
Let us know (and see) if anyone decides to purchase and construct the kit!
