CDADave: Welcome To Coeur d’Alene — in 1915

“Yep, we’re looking east from 1st and Sherman Avenue circa 1915; at left, you see the CDA Hotel (later, the Desert Hotel), but at right is the “HOTEL FRANKLIN”, a structure I never knew existed. As you can see, it’s sort of a ‘triangular’ building; you can see buildings like this in older downtown districts of bigger cities. I remember seeing a few of these in downtown Portland, for example. Click on the picture…it enlarges. What a quaint old scene” — CDADave/Thin Air.
