Yesterday's post Name That Photo - Where & What? Showed this photo:
And we didn't have any guesses that came close!
A cage elevator in the lobby hand-operated by an attendant is a throwback to the past.
It's the elevator in the lobby of the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego! Seen in The comedy film "Some Like It Hot," starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.
L. Frank Baum, the author of "The Wizard of Oz" books, was a frequent guest of the Hotel del Coronado and designed the crown-shaped chandeliers in the hotel's formal dining room. Other guests included England's Prince of Wales (who may have met his legendary love, Wallis Simpson, there), and a list of movie stars too numerous to mention.
