I've seen the picture before without the colorizing, but I have never heard any details about where or when it was taken.  Interesting shot.

Shadow of the CQ would seem to indicate a brighter light, like a photographers flash to the left of the camera.

I’m gonna guess late 40s or early 50s in a small town, given the use for Coleman lighting, the hairstyles, and the popping colors.

I've seen that before, too, Chuck, on Shorpy.  Is that where you saw it?  However, I can't say I remember if it had a description or not.

You can't go by the colors.  This image was partially colorized, so we wouldn't know the true original colors.  Notice that only three of the four people and their drinks were colorized in the pic.  The bar and background are still B&W.

Good info Jim, thanks. 

No Steve, I think I spotted it on Pinterest, but Shorpy looks like a great site to look around.  Thanks for the tip.

Sure looks like a lumberjack bar--note no vent, globe or shade in the picture. They've long since been lost to general rowdiness.

Lighting had to be flash--either bulbs--big ones--or flash powder. The film speeds of the day required a LOT of light to get anything resembling stop-action. It's also been well diffused from the softness of the shadows.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Cheers photo chopped the guys hand off her shoulder, and with the general fuzziness of the pic, it looks like shes flipping the guy with the shot glass off.  (it's actually a cigarette)

They must have figured that's Carla...

Is it just me or is the bar a little skimpy on beer serving size?

I remember having lots of beers in those small beer glasses back in the day.  Those were used on quarter draft night.  It was a great way to get people to the bar on a night that one wouldn't normally go out, like on a Monday.

Looks like a "schooner" to me. Usually 8-12 oz. You folks these days are spoiled by pint glasses!

I have “pint” glasses here that only hold twelve ounces, back in the day a common local scam! 
I frighten easily!

My current shade is Coleman!!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

Stupid historical fact o'the day:

London had riots caused by pubs selling beer out of undersized pint glasses. Blowing the glasses with extra-thick sides and bottoms was one trick that was used. To deal with the problem, the UK required all pint (Imp) glasses to be certified and marked with an etched line near the top, labeled "1 Pint Imp". If someone says they use English pint glasses, look for the mark! The glasses are also made of tempered glass, which probably cut down on breakage, but the real reason was that the English and Scots like to use beer glasses as weapons. Hard to cut someone with a handfull of little cubes!

PS: One Imperial pint equals 19.7 fluid ounces. American pints are 16 fl oz.

When our pub first opened we used real English pint glasses. Now we use American. Sigh....
