The Penn-Harris Hotel at Night
This is an unused Curteich “C. T. Art-Colortone” card, number 1B-H723, manufactured in 1941 and coming to us from the collection of Kay Anthony. The back of the card bears no description. I especially like the radio tower at the top of the building; it was probably the tallest construction in the city at the time.
Located at southeast corner of North Third and Walnut Streets in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the hotel had 14 stories and was constructed in 1918. The original building on this site, the four-story YWCA, was built in 1914 and was demolished after only four years in favor of the hotel.
Sadly, the hotel itself was demolished in 1978 to make way for Strawberry Square, a million-square-foot office and shopping complex.
