The clipping says the Mississippi Hotel in 1974 but which door was this? Anyone have photographs of the building from this era showing more of the building? 

Ted Hurdis- That’s the main entrance. I thought I recognized it. My wife confirmed it for me and she said *Star Sadler had a little office to the right side

Linda Seccaspina– Wow, what a dump
Mary Anne Harrison Linda it wasn’t any better on the inside either. 😜
Llew Lloyd– I’m guessing the whole place was renovated in 1969 or 70 . I believe you have a picture from one of the 1969 parades with the building in the background. You should be able to see whether or not the ” improved ” entrance was there .

Tammy Marion  – This brings back a memory for me. In the summer of 1978 a guy/man asked me if I could watch his German Shepherd dog for 1 hour while he went in the Mississippi hotel. The front entrance of the hotel looked just as it does in this photo – and that is the door he went in. It was evening – near dusk. I said sure I would because I was ( and still am) a huge Shepherd lover and I didn’t want him to be alone outside.I asked the guy to make sure he was back out in 1 hour as I need to go home. He said ” I sure will”.
Three hours later he still never came back out. I couldn’t just leave the dog loose and alone and I couldn’t go inside to find this guy because I wasn’t of age and my best friend’s Mom worked there at the time and knew that. A friend came along and I asked her if she could watch the dog because I really need to get home. She did and I left. I don’t know whatever became of that dog or the guy or how much longer my friend stayed with the dog.

Brian Carter in front of the Mississippi Hotel – 1980’s– You can see the tar marks where they took down the additions still front and side.
Jennifer Fenwick Irwin asked where the sign was– I don’t think we will ever know.. Here are the folks that made it
