Sam Sloan Cigar

Sixth and Weller, Chinatown

Sam Sloan was a railroad tycoon as well as president of several large corporations including Western Union. For more details, follow this link-

Not sure where the cigars come into his story- I assume this store sold these cigars, but am unclear about whether it had something to do with our railroad or something else entirely. Curious!
