Prince Edward Hotel – 1928

0522

 

A neat old postcard view, this one dated 1928, of the “new” Prince Edward Hotel on Ouellette and Park. Sadly this one too is long gone. I like the little bot of artistic license take with the hustle and bustle in the foreground. My favourite is the dude in a top hat and tails. Judging by the cars in this one, the picture is probably closer to the 1924 opening then it is to the 1928 postmark on the back of the card.

 

Hope everyone had a good long weekend!
