Miller Avenue looking north from the site of what would later become the 2 AM Club. Before Mill Valley's incorporation in 1900, about a dozen saloons were scattered around town. With incorporation came anti-alcohol laws, one stating that saloons within the city limit could not remain open after 10 PM. The 2 AM Club was built on the then unincorporated corner of Miller and Montford Avenues and it remained open until 2 AM, hence its name. The town later annexed this block so it could force the saloon to close earlier. The bearded man in the suit is Jacob Gardner.
