[Washington, DC: Shoreham Hotel, circa 1887]. The first Shoreham Hotel in Washington DC was founded in 1887 by then U.S. Vice President, Levi P. Morton, who named it after the city in Vermont where he was born. The original hotel went bankrupt in 1927, and its grand building at the corner of 15th and H Streets NW was sold to a developer who demolished it, replacing it with an office building that, ironically, was converted in 2002 to a hotel. Four 9.3 x 16.5 cm pages including covers; printed on heavy cardstock. Front cover illustrated with lithograph of the hotel replete with horse-drawn carriages lining the streets; back cover with advertisement for “The Shoreham Ladies and Gentlemens Café.” Interior pages list “Where to Shop” and “Where to Go.” Split at fold otherwise very good.
