Photo Number 1049

I found this old photo in a folder at an antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota. Persian Room 1945 Brainerd Antiques

The Persian Room was some fancy place for the Army Air Corps to meet the Navy.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)


  1. Another great find!

  2. Actually, I think I've stayed at the Drake. It's still there. You can check out their website at www.sirfrancisdrake.com and then click the tab for "The Drake Story" to get a glimpse of their history. Of course, that doesn't help determine who the subjects of this photo are...but an interesting detour into local history. Wonder who from MN was in SF...

  3. I grew up near San Francisco and have always thought it would have been neat to see it in the late 30's and 40's.
