BRISTOL HOTEL

Originally, this was the Hotel Threadgill built in the early 1900s at 300 North Broadway, 2 blocks North of the Skirvin.

Although the automobile images have been redrawn and the reference to the Skirvin Tower places THIS postcard in the 1930's, an otherwise identical "source" postcard is dated around 1913. Hence, I've placed this postcard in the 1910 decade, with that understanding. The Bristol survived until the 1960s or 1970s.

Both the Kingkade (19 W Grand) and Bristol (300 N Broadway) were constructed in or before the 1910s. By the 1930s they were under common ownership, as indicated by this hotel stationery logo from that period.
