RARA-AVIS: Butte likes Hammett

I stumbled across this tonight:


That's Butte (pron. "Byoot" like "beautiful"), Montana, which was the basis for Poisonville in Dashiell Hammett's RED HARVEST. Hammett and the book seem to be a big part of Butte history, although apparently it's not even known if he ever went there.
