With regard to the old Danmoore Hotel in Portland, Oregon, your research is correct as it relates to the "newer" Danmoore Hotel, however, part of the confusion is that there was an earlier Danmoore Hotel located at 475 Washington Street (Corner of 14th Street) but was only known by that name for a short time (1908-1909) as shown here:



The old Danmoore Hotel was first known as the Nortonia (1906), the Danmoore (1908), the Hotel Ramapo (1909) and later the Taft Hotel (1955). Interestingly, that old building still stands today and is used as residential housing known as the Taft Home for Senior and Disabled Adults:

The Wiggens Old Tavern of the Northampton Hotel in Northampton, Massachusetts, USA.

Despite the title on the card, the tavern is not visible as, from this angle, it is on the back side of the building.

This nice blog posted the same exterior, but with 2x interior views:

These guys will sell you scans at 600 dpi for U$D 10 or 1200 dpi for U$D 79 ... nice work if you can get it, eh?

The hotel brochure is at the Historic New England archive:

Sent to my Grandfather in Australia from a relative in Santa Barbara in 1919. My research showed an interesting history including a fire that destroyed the property in 1921.

Was this the correct rate for Air Mail.?

The domestic air mail rate in the U.S. the date of the card was 6 cent between selected cities. The postcard rate was double (2 cents) at this time because of the war. The 6 cents here probably pays an international rate.

The Waldhaus Dolder in Zurich CH.

http://www.dolderwaldhaus.ch/en ... like many older EU hotels, they now offer both rooms & apartments.

The WikiGod has images of other postcards that show a tram on those tracks (lower right corner).

The Hotel Continental in Stockholm SE.

http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotel_Continental

Lotsa versions, earlier & later, but it looked like this collotype postcard from 1906 to 1958.

http://www.stockholmskallan.se/Soks...t/?nid=29234 ... excellent 1951 image

The Hotel Restaurant Nestler at Berlin's Zehlendorf-West railway station.

Argentinische Allee am Bahnhof Zehlendorf-West = Argentine Avenue at the Station Zehlendorf-West (now Mexikoplatz)


Quote:
http://www.kulturfuehrer-berlin.de/.../tour-17.php ... walking tour identifies the building as the "Former Hotel Nestler"

Der Startpunkt unserer Tour ist der 1905 von den Architekten Hart und Lesser im Jugendstil erbaute S-Bahnhof Mexikoplatz. Wir überqueren die Beerenstraße und gelangen auf die linke Seite des Mexikoplatzes mit Rasen und Blumenbeeten. Dort stehen wir vor einem Miets- und Geschäftshaus (Mexikoplatz 4), das der Architekt Otto Kuhlmann in den Jahren 1905/06 im Landhausstil errichtete. Auch die anderen Häuser auf dem Platz stammen von ihm. In diesem Eckgebäude befand sich vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg das Hotel und Restaurant von Josef Nestler. Seit den 60er Jahren beherbergt es ein italienisches Lokal.

The starting point of our tour is the 1905, designed by the architects Hart and Lesser Art Nouveau S-Bahnhof Mexikoplatz. We cross the road and Beer reach the left side of Mexico square with lawn and flower beds. There we are faced with a locative and commercial building (Mexikoplatz 4), which was built by the architect Otto Kuhlmann in the years 1905-06 in the country house style. The other houses on the site come from him. In this corner building was before the Second World War, the hotel and restaurant of Josef Nestler. Since the 60s, it features an Italian restaurant.

The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. My wife picked up this post card for me at the local antique mall today. Postmarked in Nanuet, New York, close to my old stomping ground growing up in northern New Jersey. Good find, honey.

Cheers,

I've seen a square cancel in the past with QUEBEC PROVINCIAL EXPOSITION

so could it be QUEBEC EXPOSITION PROVINCIAL perhaps?

Excellent suggestion, Bas!

The Quebec Provincial Exposition seems to have been an annual event.
