• Lunt Motel

    A Blockbuster Video store sits on part of the site of this old motel. Salt Lakers, remind me, what is east of the Blockbuster taking up the rest of this old site? See below for the postcard description. (The postcard was unmailed and I'm not sure how old…

  • South East Furniture

    This building, in the Sugar House neightborhood of SLC, is no longer a furniture store, and no longer sports groovy signage, but it's still there. I believe it will be demolished in the 2nd of 3rd wave of demolition/rebuilds planned for Sugar House. When…

  • Main St Salt Lake City postcard

    This is the section of Main St. that's now a walking extention of Temple Square. There's a big ugly underground parking entrance on this side, though the rest is a lot prettier. Mainly I don't like the street blocked off because so much of the traffic goi…

  • Beaver postcard back

    This is the back of the Stag Motel postcard. I am sure if the sender is still alive, it's unlikely that after 47 years he is still living at the same address. Fancy that 3 cent stamp! Here's the front of the postcard: www.flickr.com/photos/43638298@N00/25…
