If you go to the Mews Tarvern's web page and click on "Read the Story" you will find this:

"In 1947, the Mews Tavern opened as a local pub for fishermen. In 1990 local fishermen Dave Barns and Danny Rubino purchased this hidden gem and started transforming it into the place we all know and love today. Shortly after the partners took over, their friend Arthur DeFrance wished them good luck by sticking a dollar on the ceiling in the Tavern. From then on, people began leaving their mark on the Tavern by plastering dollar bills with messages all over the bar. Customers have even left behind personal memorabilia such as a bra, hoola hoops, and even an old pair of bowling shoes! This famous tradition continues today as the Mews allows its customers to immortalize their own space of the Tavern by stapling up a dollar with a message."

    Great shot, i like the detail on the right. Is this the money the States misses to fill the big hole (lol)? In Nijmegen (the Netherland) is public toilet on a train station where the keeper gets a lot of foreign mony and he sticks it to the wall. Next time when i'm there i take a picture of him and his money for you. Also thanks for your comments on the my pictures :-)

    How amazing ...wall papered with dollar bills. I heard of an eccentric lady, many years ago that lived in my hometown who stuffed her money inside the walls of her house ....To all appearances she looked impoverished but turns out she was wealthy after she passed away.

    This crosses a new frontier and what a nice dedication. I've only seen this twice before: At a restaurant last month in Castine, Maine (with Patty and Dave Gross) and at a restaurant on the Superstition Trail just east of Apache Junction, AZ. Nice subject matter, as always, John.

    woooa this is a really good photography, i love the concept of memories in a dollar and i was specially attracted by the 100 mexican pesos because i'm from mexicali B.C. mexico :D, it could just be a little detail on the pic, but i really like it a lot :)
