The Fairmont Hotel, 1956
In San Francisco, the Fairmont Hotel has been a symbol of luxury since its opening back in 1907. This vintage 1956 shot shows two guests standing by a sign inside the hotel promoting the vast array of dining and entertainment options available.
Shall we take a closer look? Of course! The headliner in the Venetian Room is Miguelito Valdes, aka Mr. Babalú.
Here's a vintage album cover so you can see what he looks like:
I wonder if Lucy ever met Miguelito?
