Did most Old West saloons have swinging doors?
Many, perhaps most, Old West saloons did not have swinging doors. These types of doors were more popular in warmer climates, like in Texas and Arizona. In cold weather places, like Colorado and Montana, drinking establishments typically had traditional wooden doors. The Alamo in Abilene, Kansas, was a classy joint that had glass doors; I’m not sure how often they had to replace the glass, though!
