I met Maria Collins when I was doing table visits in the Tavern one day. She mentioned that she had been married here, and so I asked my usual question about photos, and shortly afterwards she dropped off her wedding album for us at the front desk. It was dated June 2, 1957
You can also see how the Grand Ballroom had a different paint scheme which was quite busy, and it had paintings such as the one that you can see on the wall in between the doors to the Tavern.
I hope you enjoy this glimpse back in time to 1957, some 57 years ago, to a wedding at the historic Hawthorne Hotel.
And of course, I always hope to see you here.
