On the south end of the boulevard, bound by Michigan Avenue, stood the venerable Cadillac Hotel. The Book brothers - Herbert, Frank and J. Burgess Book Jr. were born within its walls and played along the landscaped mall that stood outside it, historian William Hawkins Ferry wrote. The Cadillac Hotel's origins went back to 1885, when Daniel Scotten built a four-story business block between Washington and Shelby that was rented to a grocery company that soon failed. He then converted it into the Cadillac Hotel in 1888.
Our blank notecards are custom printed at our location in Seattle, WA. They come bagged with an envelope. We love illustration art from old children's books and early, printed ephemera. These cards reflect this interest in bringing delightful art back to life.
