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

Long before Adolf Hitler and his Nazis appeared on the world scene, the sleepy Lake Pend Oreille community of Lakeside featured two destination hotels, including "The Swastika."

(Herb sent this to me yesterday after reading out discussion re: the swastika symbols in the Bonneville County Courthouse tile here.
