Gambling During the Gold Rush Project

by R4

This playlist¬†explores the personalities that would be present in a saloon during the gold rush era. We created a radio play based on the painting entitled “Slim Jim,” found in the BC Archives.


The Parson Takes the Pot Radio Play
By R4
Our group has created a radio play of what we thought a conversation would be during a match of Faro in a saloon/bar setting. The radio play is based off of the "Slim Jim" painting. The conversation is mostly had between the player, and what is thought to be a Reverend.
