History of the Hawthorne Hotel, Pre-Opening

Thanks to a history buff friend of the Hawthorne Hotel, we learned about an advertising piece that was available for sale, and we bought it.  It arrived yesterday, and we scanned it so that we could share it with you here. That way you can see the front and the back of the piece.

It is a pre-opening promotional advertising piece, stating the hotel would be open in August.  Low and behold, this hotel project opened ahead of schedule, with the grand opening occurring in early July of 1925.

If you want to be able to see these enlarged, just click on each image.

I hope you enjoy seeing some of our history, even something like a small advertising piece like this one.

I hope to see you here.
