Taylor Inn, Lodi, Ohio Postcard

By: N/A

Price: $9.95

Publisher: Germany, Unknown

Very bight and clean postcard which was filled out but never sent. The message is funny because Lodi is still a very small town and has no hotel at all these days. The card was addressed to Miss Lura Sheehan Alliance, Ohio. On the other side of the dividing line it reads "Hello, Lura -- You will think I have died, but I am very much alive. Now will you make fun of Lodi when we have a hotel like this? Come up if you don't believe it is truly here. Blanche." View more info

This card was republished later by a bookstore, but this is the early one. There's a nice description on the back, but the postmark obscures it a bit.

A Navajo sweat house is next to it where the Medicine man cured the sick. Card was sent to Francis Russell of Minerva, Ohio from New Mexico. The message on the divid... View more info

This was one of the many mom and pop motels available during the period.
