Mark Twain Hotel, Chicago (Postcard Series)

The History of the Mark Twain Hotel.  (USA Today, 2012)

Excerpt:   The 200-room Mark Twain Hotel was built in the 1930s. Designed by architect Harry Glube in 1930, the Art Deco-style building was constructed of a beige brick with white terra-cotta accents. The Mark Twain Hotel is in the heart of Chicago's historic Gold Coast Neighborhood, an affluent part of town that expanded greatly after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The Gold Coast neighborhood is on the National Register of Historic Places.
