–This is a pretty typical example of the second generation of motels, where the once free-standing cottages are merged into a single building with independent entrances on to a common parking lot. The presence of a restaurant on site was a significant amenity in areas where the motel was not near a population center, which is not the case here.

This card likely dates from the 1940s.
