The House of Hospitality – 1938

1024

An old ad for the long gone Norton Palmer Hotel at Park & Pelissier. Hard to imagine such a grand old hotel once stood downtown. It’s a shame it never survived. Old hotels just have a certain charm that will never be recreated in more modern ones. The big old North American Hotels from the 1920’s are truly glimpses into another era of travel.
