Another Historic Post Card For Our Collection
(To enlarge this image just click on it.)
As you can see there was a building to the rear of the hotel. This was the Now and Then Club, a local social club that was very popular for a number of years. At some point the club was torn down to make way for a parking lot for the hotel.
In reading the postcard back, it appears that the person who wrote it used it as a kind of journal, never meaning to send it to anyone. The interesting statement about "no charge for our rooms" causes much speculation about why. Of course we would love to know the answer, but will likely never learn it.
I hope you enjoy seeing this little slice of our history.
