1. “The Tin Can” ----------- “Dotís Place” Marker
Inscription. The two modern buildings replaced structures built in the early 20th Century and were used in two of Truckeeís notorious industries ē Bootlegging and prostitution. They upheld a tradition begun on this street in the 1870ís. Many a thirst was slaked and need fulfilled because of these buildingís contents. Politely ignored, although they never failed because of lack of business, they operated until mid century to serve the working men of this and surrounding communities. Changing commercial interests and ultimately property values doomed the buildings to history.
