The Sagamore Hotel in Rochester, New York (Postcard Series)

From Rochester History: "A History of the Rochester City Club".   Even in 1926-27, when the City Club joined the Council of Civic Clubs in a plan to remodel the Sagamore Hotel for more convenient club use, a well organized drive for 1000 men, at five dollars each, rounded up only 268 members.

Found at Pinterest.  The Sagamore Hotel, now the East Avenue Commons, was built between 1921 and 1925. Architect John Armstrong of Chicago headed the design team with assistance from the firm Gordon & Kaelber. This nine-story brick structure is comprised of two twin buildings that are connected by a two-story stone "hyphen". This design was modeled after the Parc Lane Apartments in Chicago. The Sagamore served as one of Rochester's most prominent hotels and convention spots.
