Roxy: Remember North Shore

 (The Spokesman-Review)
(The Spokesman-Review)

In this postcard reproduction from the 1970s, OrangeTV/Remember The Roxy provides newbies -- and anyone who arrived after the mid-1980s -- with an idea re: the activity that surrounded Bob Templin's old North Shore Motor Hotel. If you look closely, the old structure comprises the lower 6 or 7 floors of the Coeur d'Alene Resort, which replaced the North Shore after Duane Hagadone and Jerry Jaeger grabbed the hospitality industry from Templin in a hostile takeover. OrangeTV has posted a new series of old photos on his Roxy Web site.

Question: What is your best memory from the old North Shore?
