Dining room of the second Southern Hotel, which stood at the southeast corner of what is now Main and Market streets. Undated photograph, unidentified woman. Originally an outbuilding
to the first Southern Hotel at the corner of Market and Railroad (in the same block). The first Southern Hotel burned down in 1888 and the outbuilding was
converted into its successor.
Photograph identified by Maggi Perkins (2010:36), who writes:
"While not as well appointed
as its predecessor, this photograph shows that the interior and furnishings of the second Southern Hotel were of good quality and tastefully done with an eye to details.
The lady's sour expression may stem from the effort of pleating so many napkins before the evening meal."
