I'm researching the history of a hotel that once stood near the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, site of our annual rodeo and stock show, and thus the site of an annual midway and sideshow since 1936. A journalist has told me that some carnival and sideshow people used to stay at the hotel.


Above is a scan of a vintage postcard of the place. I'm hoping to reach some people who came through here on their circuit and either stayed there or remember it. It would be even better if some of them had photos they took there or souvenirs from the hotel - matchbooks, etc.


The years of the hotel's existence: 1945-late 1960s or very early 1970s.


I hope you can help me.


My projects are a book for 2013, an article to be completed by mid-August 2012, and possibly another book to be written in collaboration with another writer. The hotel will be included in both books; the article focuses entirely on the hotel.




Fort Worth, Texas
