C 1911 A Miracle in Hotel Building, Being the Story of the Building of the New Canyon Hotel In Yellowstone Park (Published by the Yellowstone Park Hotel Company) Raftery, John Hentry; Photographs by F. J. Haynes Relates to the Quinton Blair Residence (S.351). "...The two regiments of men who spent the winter of 1910-11 building this marvelous mountain hotel have been practically isolated from the world for months. They have worked always seven days of the week ; they had no saloon or club or theater to beguile their time or bemuse their faculties, and even for the younger, pleasure-loving workers there was no diversion, except the fierce thrill of gliding and coasting on skis over the glacier-like slopes of the desolate amphitheatre which surrounded them. There is probably no other like example of hotel-building in history, and the structure which is the result, the scene which it civilizes without desecrating, the strange region which it adorns without vulgarizing are all in keeping and in singular symmetry. ...Rustic it is not, in the sense that Old Faithful Inn is rustic. Architect Robert C. Reamer, who also contrived and constructed the historic Old Faithful Inn, smiled gravely when I commented upon this impressive feature of his latest and greatest work, saying: "I built it in keeping with the place where it stands. Nobody could improve upon that. To be at discord with the landscape, would be almost a crime. To try to improve upon it, would be an impertinence." Digital copy. 6 x 9.25.
