Lander, WyomingJ.K. Moore, post trader at Fort Washakie, built the large store shown in mid-photo in the early 1880s. It was later to be one of the most elaborate saloons in the entire west, fitted out with glassware and furniture cut in the shape of diamonds. Still later, it was a ladies fancy millinery store, and later yet, a hotel and bar. Just to the left, the building with the Albany Bar sign was built by Eugene Amoretti, Sr. in the summer of 1891 at the corner of Second and Main. Lander's first telephone exchange was located here, on the second floor.
