UPDATE: Read the great comment below
Classic. Why buy new cards when you can just black out the old name and print in the new? And you’ve heard of Austin City Limits. Here in Lex, it’s the Eastern City Limits. (Why is there an X on one of the rooms?)
Wait, I think I can make the previous name on the sign out front…..it says Day’s Motel. Couldnt black that out. So they just had to go with it and hope that no one would notice. But I thought Day’s was on the Western City limits – and isnt it still called “Days?”
To add to the confusion – here is the Western City Limits Day’s Motel
Could it be that one hotel proprietor didn’t know there was another motel named “Day’s” within a few miles? I guess we know who won. OR was it a chain, both called “Day’s”? Signs sure look familiar. (I’ll write about this Day’s later – but do notice how this was on the edge of town at the time. This view is looking south on Versailles Road. And there’s a BARNand FIELDS right next to the motel. Now it’s in the middle of town.
Cant beat this for a recco! Well, you could actually….Simply describing the room isn’t really a good recommendation. But hey, the Days Motel RANCH MOTEL was the “best in the Blue Grass.” (Just not at brand transitions.) And it was “air cooled” – with fans.
It was Safe-Sane-Economical. What do they mean by Sane? Were other motels insane? Were things so crazy in 1951 that people needed a motel to provide them with sanity?
In 1951, Radio was a necessity.
