March 2014 Where The Heck Is It?


An early view of a rather ramshackle hotel complex called the "Ramesses Terrace" attracted a mix of the famous and ordinary tenants. Though lacking in cleanliness and special amenities, the hotel had a few long-term residents. The most famous resident occupied the suite indicated by the arrow. There was much speculation as to who this resident might be: Teddy Roosevelt? Sarah Bernhardt? Mark Twain? Or was it Ima Hogg from Texas?

This photograph raises several questions

1. Where was the photograph taken?

2. Who was the occupant of the suite indicated by the arrow?

3. What ancient structure lies directly underneath that suite? (be VERY specific)

Bring your answers to the March 22 ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
