Lovely cards here.

There was a style back in the old days that would suggest class and pride in the workmanship.

Imperial Hotel, Miami, built 1939. Recent chrome, but Art Deco is eternal.

Cheers,

Gonna double-dip, as I posted this to an unrelated thread.

The 'old' W-A stood 1893-1929.

Card postmarked 1914.09.25.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Although inappropriately and incorrectly named, Wigwam Villages are a great example of quirky American novelty architecture. Although this village no longer exists, all three of the surviving villages are listed on the National Register of Historic places.

1936 (from the '6A' sequence number) was a different time. It is interesting to watch as the folks who grew-up under those rules have objected or resisted or accepted or embraced or advocated for all these newer rules that have come along.

Photo of Hotel Continental & US Capitol, Washington DC

Easy to see how old this postcard really is; who, today, in their right mind, would emphasize being near Congress?

Cheers,

Under The Palms, Cristobal, Canal Zone, Panama.

I was not able to readily nail-down that this was actually a hotel, as opposed to an army camp, a work camp, a sanitorium, a religious retreat, a cat house, a movie set ... well, I guess I've nailed-down that point.

Sorry about the stamp; it came to me this way.

I redacted the names.

The address on the card is ~4mi from where I grew up.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

The Chalet at Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada.

I had a grand old time looking at Banff-area resort websites, etc, trying to find more recent photos of this building.

Good thing that I enjoy the hunt

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey



[UPDATE] "The photo you have is of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the early 1900s. After the fire in the 1920s, the Chateau was rebuilt in concrete and is currently what the building looks like today."

The architect did a nice job of keeping some of the design elements of the original building, but where're the choo-choo tracks?
