Description

Sam's Senate Saloon painting-Old Time Santa Cruz, Califorina

Michael Silbaugh "Sam's Senate Saloon painting is a rendering of a vintage historical photo taken of Senate Saloon from the late 1800's in Santa Cruz CA, by an unknown photographer. This painting is framed.
I was able to get a copy of the original photograph in the 70's from the Santa Cruz Historical Museum. On the back of the original photograph the location written is Senate Saloon, Sam Alkire, prop., 321 Soquel Ave SC. (address from: http://www.sfgenealogy.org/santacruz/szdir07/szdir07l.htm)
Sign over main entrance "Sam's Wheelman Rest" taking advantage of the bicycle craze of 1890s.

"Billy the Barber" struck a dapper pose outside Sam's Senate Saloon at Porter Street and the highway known these days as Soquel Drive. The saloon was one of several bars in the village where a patron might try to "soak his boots" for a shot of whiskey."*

Story: "Pioneer era who tried to hock his footwear for a pint of whiskey at a local saloon.
He asked the proprietor if he could "soak his boots." When the saloon keeper grumbled, "You go and soak hell," the reaction tickled the bar patrons so much they applied the name of Soquel to the saloon". So that's the telling of how Soquel got it's name "soak hell" to "Soquel" once the patron drowned in the whiskey. By Carolyn Swift - former Director, Capitola Hi
