The Cabrillo Ship Hotel Venice, CA


Sharing a vintage postcard from my collection. 
Built in 1905, The Cabrillo Ship Hotel in Venice, CA,  was one of the “in” places of its time. A “hot spot”  to be for many of Hollywoods stars in the 20’s.  Attending a New Years Eve party could mean headlines the next day.  The hotel had several owners, as many facelifts and name changes during its time. Survived a fire in 1924 and made it through the Depression.  In October 1946 it was destroyed. 
Post marked 1914
I love reading what people had to write.
And check out how they addressed them back then!
