Another wonderful set of shots. My eyebrows went up when I came upon this location, and read that it was known as the Physical Culture Hotel, owned and operated by the same man who headed PC magazine. Instant recognition to an antiques dealer/ hopeless collector such as myself! I ran to my old mag collection, dug out a Sept. 1937 issue of said mag, and flipped through hoping to find an ad for this place. Sure enough, near the back is a half-page ad almost completely devoid of graphics detailing two happy clients' accounts of their stays here and why they promised to return: "A Physical Culture vacation is the best I can imagine for a business woman. I will return home feeling on top of the world and not in need of a vacation to 'rest up'- as is needed after a vacation wherein one must rush, rush, rush, eat wrong food, and generally tear down one's health. I expect to spend many more vacations at P.C.H."...says a Miss Dorothy Sloan. And, apparently, a Mr. Frank M. Kenney "agrees 100%"! Hehe... just an interesting extra tidbit for whoever's wanting more:)
Another great shot. What I love about the morgue shots, by the way, isn't that they churn a morbid curiosity, but that they humanize things... morgues are so hidden (not that they shouldn't be, death's not an easy subject to face) from normal life while they are such an integral part. These shots and ones like them are the only contact some will have with this type of situation, in life anyway, and it's a cleaner, safer way to ponder and observe, far from the last activity it held....
