Broadway Plaza Motel postcard
A postcard of the International-style Broadway Plaza Hotel with a photo taken when it
was first completed in 1959. This building is still standing, of course!
Go here to see a 1959 ad featuring the same photo.

This photo is looking out the Sheraton windows at their own reflection in the glass walls
