George’s Postcard Note: The tiny hamlet of Almartha is almost gone. This hotel is abandoned and sitting next to a farm field, grasses growing up all around. This building is the largest structure in this tiny spot in the Ozarks. One can’t help but think of the “action’ that must have taken place in these rooms during the past almost 100 years. If these walls could talk! The imagery of the stamp gives the impression of encounters in a room of the hotel…so I placed it near an upstairs room window.
