Photo Number 255
Another photo of a mystery place. Thatched roofs..Model T's or Model A's..?? Discreet bathing attire. Chairs and rocking chairs outside to enjoy the evening air.
To make it even more confusing, this is what is on the back. Was the photo just used as a note card for information..or was Hiram McDonald in the photo? Possibly a 1920's photo? Why is it that some of these photos just bring up more questions than they answer?
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Update: Thanks to some great detective work by Iggy we now know that this was Coronado Tent City in California. The photo was taken before 1923, because that was the year that the thatched roofs were removed. Up until 1923 it was only a summer resort where you could rent a tent by the day or by the week. It must have been a really cool place to stay! Here is a link to some old postcards and photos..Shellbelle's Tiki Hut.
