Harvey Hotel

Hotel Harvey

Uncirculated
E. C. Kropp, Co. (late 1940s-mid 1950s)

My mother-in-law sent me a wonderful collection of postcards, this among them. Although I don't understand why, I love vintage postcards depicting buildings having painted adverts on the exteriors.

Here's a very depressing image of the building today:

Makes sense to me. The new adverts on the side aren't nearly as nice...although there's something for 95 cents.
