Photo Number 771

Another mystery photo.  I purchased this one at the Antique Shop in Dorset Minnesota.  The second shop..Dorset is small but it has three antique shops.
Only Connie knows for sure
This photo looks to be from the 1940’s. 

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update:  This is Brooke Army Medical Center at  Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio Texas


  1. Another great photo, Connie!

  2. Those cars are almost as interesting as that building!

  3. I'm still trying to decide if this building is a Hotel, Apartment or an office building! It's odd that it doesn't have a sign anywhere to be seen out front.

    It appears to have a tile roof - but there aren't any overt signs that this location is any place warm (there are no Palm trees). I am vaguely reminded of Washington DC with its short long (and unsigned) Federal buildings - and also of some of the old railroad hotels (but see no sign of trackage).

  4. I think the gentleman in the parking lot is wearing a serviceman's uniform. Could this be a veteran's hospital?

  5. Brooke Army Medical Center, San Antonio, Texas

  6. The building is the old Brooke Army Medical Center on Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. It is still standy but is no longer used as a hospital. It is now the headquarters for United States Army South.
