the hotel's name was likely The Graemere,go to digitalpast.org and under Search, type in graemere, it should provide 2 images of postcards, one of the lounge, the other of the hotel & surrounding area. I believe it was in Garfield Park area.

I believe the hotel was abandoned for a long time & Demolished in the late 1970's-early 1980's.

The hotel was located on Homan and W. Washington Blvd. on the northeast corner. It was a majestic resident type hotel with long term and short term residents. Its heyday was in the 30's & 40's. As a youth in the late 40's I delevered the Chicago Harold American newspaper (30 ) copies to the hotel each afternoon. I can remember all the different fine smells of luxury throughout the hallways as I delivered each paper. A experience few outsider had. I saw it decline in the 50's .. I think it was renamed the Joe Louis for awhile but not sure when... Don't know what happened to it.
