Re: for salevintage Agua Caliente Jockey Club, Tijuan

A couple of nice chips and a good story about Agua Caliente but I thought there was a "Great Depression" going on at that time. Who had money to go to Mexico to gamble? I remember stories about how hard times were then, not having a nickel for a nipple for a baby bottle, men taking a couple of days off so someone else could work a bit, the government paying 10 cents on the dollar to buy cattle only to dig a trench, run the cattle into the trench and slaughter them in an effort to stabilize the price of beef. Oh well, guess there have always been the Have's and the Have Not's.

Anyway, sounds like it was a fun place.
