A great message. Pre printed....Now is the time to enjoy San Franciscos invigorating climate. Hotel Manx offers every comfort. Location unsurpassed. Commodious lobbies and homelike atmosphere ideal for ladies traveling alone. Running ice water in every room. Rates reasonable. Reductions by week or month

Well I am glad Ladies are safe to visit here alone and I can just picture the ice shooting out of the tap with water of course.  The is  Hotel Manx exists now but a completely new one.  For more PCC action go to

Great card and the text is telling so much about another time. Although everyone still wants to feel save in a hotel. Happy PFF

i was just thinking that the handwriting was a bit too legible, when i realised this was a pre-print!... a wonderful advertising card! happy PFF!

That building reminds me of some of our stores downtown. I have a hard time imagining them as hotels! Happy PFF!

back then i suppose no one asked for running hot water in every room! I wonder where this was?

Fun card. Would love to see where it is now. Happy PFF!

I was thinking maybe it wasn't a preprint but written by a real person because of the way the writing overlaps the divider.

Commodious lobbies, what I always look for in a hotel;-)
Interesting name I wonder if the original owner was a Manx man from the Isle of Man or perhaps its the Manx cat which has no tail.

Lovely! I too am delighted that they enjoyed their stay. Love the automobiles!

Linda said...

Isn't that interesting, promoting the hotel for ladies traveling solo. I like that!

I am laughing imagining ICE shooting out of the faucets. Happy PFF. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely postcard!

I think this may be the same 'Hotel Manx' my grandparents and I along with my brother stayed at when we toured the U.S. in summer of 1961. I was 9 3/4 my brother was 8 3/4. My grandparents were opera singers, taking me and my brother along on their long vacation.

If it's the same Hotel Manx - my grandfather dubbed it the 'Hotel Stanx' necause we all hated it - and he moved us out to better lodgings!

Peace,

An enormous looking place to have a homelike atmosphere! No doubt running ice water is better than no water at all. :)
