Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, circa 1905. "Park Hotel." An interesting cast of characters in less than park-like surroundings. Detroit Publishing. I didn't really notice all the people in the different locations until I looked at this in full size.
Washington, D.C., circa 1920. "Old Capital Hotel, 3rd and Pennsylvania N.W." When the place was torn down in 1926, the sign had changed from "Capital" to "Capitol." Originally the St. Charles Hotel, it had a colorful (at times appalling) history going back to 1813. National Photo Co. glass negative.
