Tuesday’s postcard that we identified as the Fairmount Hotel at NW Vaughn & 26th created a bit of doubt about it actually being the Fairmount. Shown here is the back of the same postcard. It does not prove anything other than that the writer thought it was the Fairmount, but here it is anyway.
Seeing the 1951 version of the Leonard Apartments (Fairmount Hotel building) last week, VP Fan Bud Holland dug through his archives and found this great circa 1910 postcard of the original Fairmount Hotel. There have been quite a few architectural changes since then, including extending the second floor rooms to the porch roof edge to provide more interior square footage. Thanks again Bud!
Update: This is probably not the Fairmount Hotel building. See the comments and discussion here. We’ll put this one in the Mystery Location category.
