When I started designing Call of the Wild I started researching the Klondike miners that hit the Alaskan wilderness. I began playing around with the idea the miners hitting pay dirt, then dropping in on makeshift saloons with mirrored advertising behind the barkeep.

Here are a couple of examples of vintage mirror advertising.  I love the silver & gold fancywork associated with this genre of advertising and included it in this collection.
