DescriptionA drawing of the Franciscan Hotel, located at Central Avenue and Sixth Street in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico. The light gray adobe building is five stories tall and has an American flag flying on the roof. The awning over the front door is red. The background is a blue and pink sky with trees behind the hotel. The back of the postcard is stamped and postmarked. The note is written to Miss Viola Porter of Cleveland, Ohio and reads "Deal fell through, so will probably pull stakes soon for L.A. Don't send any more mail here. I'll let you know within a day or so just what transpires. Gift is still intact and ready for delivery. E."
