The Green Room Hotel Edison
It's not often that I get to put up one of these souvenir photo folders from something that's still in business. Hotel Edison was built in 1931 in the same art deco style as Radio City Music Hall. It's located at 228 W. 47th St. New York, N.Y. 10036. The Green Room was the bar/restaurant attached to the Edison Hotel ball room. For more information go to http://www.edisonballroom.com/ Printed on the back, "For extra copies write to: Hotel Edison PHOTOGRAPHY DEPT. 46th & 47th Street West of Broadway. Ask for number on back of photograph." That's actually kind of significant because the negs still might be sitting in some closet in the hotel. Written on the inside of the folder, "1-July-1945 Here to the days ahead. Good times + luck. Harold" Also, "Hope she will be here in the next one Bill. Best of luck, Henrietta" And, "To a swell evening, best of luck to you. Lt. Ted Bratt."
