POSTCARDS
 
  Designed in 1911 as "The Geneva Inn", "The Geneva" opened in August 1912. Within two years, it changed hands due to financial difficulties. By the end of 1914 and the beginning of 1915 the name was changed to the "Hotel Geneva", and it stayed the Hotel Geneva most of its life. During its final years it was known as "The Geneva Inn". It was demolished in 1970.  Very few photograph exist of the Hotel Geneva, so postcards have become a very good record.  Even in her book "Lost Wright", by Carla Lind, the only image published of the Hotel Geneva is the post card below dated 1938The History of the Hotel Geneva viewed through Post Cards.

Title: "Hotel ‘Geneva’ Lake Geneva, Wis." Circa 1914-15 (1911 - S.171).

Description: "The Geneva" opened in August 1912. Within two years, it changed hands due to financial difficulties. By the end of 1914 and the beginning of 1915 the name was changed to the "Hotel Geneva". This card most likely produced during the transition period, hence the title of [ Hotel "Geneva" ]. This also appears to be reprint of an earlier postcard, with the new name change. This may be one of the earliest images of the Hotel Geneva. Notice the lack of any landscaping, even in the large vases. Possible decorative flag flying from left "Light Pole" as seen in the original drawings. "Light Poles" are at full height. Back: "Post Card. (Left) This space may be used for correspondence. (Right) For address only." (Published by V. O. Hammon Co., Chicago.)
