More Information

"The setting is Tom Sharkey's club, not far from the artist's first studio in New York City's Lincoln Arcade Building.  Sharkey, a retired fighter, operated a saloon where he staged frequent bouts in the back room.  Since prize-fights were illegal as a public sporting event in New York, Sharkey's operated as a private club calling tickets to the fights 'dues.'"
