"Old Fashion Inn"

Anyone remember anything about that business?

I'm trying to date it.

We have a huge mirror that came out of it & I have never heard of it.

Matt...Nothing in sponsors for the 1921 or 1935 annuals..but, in City Directories for 1962 and 1964...there was a clothing business called, "Fashion City"...Mrs. Christine C. Chiesa..women's clothing...714 Main St. Not sure if that could be a clue...maybe!

It is a huge mirror, so perhaps it had something to do with clothing.

There was a Fashion Island in the seventies but I don't recall a Fashion Inn. There are gaps in my knowledge for the years I haven't done Stardust.

Matt,

There was a "Old Fashion Inn" in Huntley - some kind of roadhouse / nightclub - could it be a mirror from a bar?

It shows up in a google search - in some old Billings Gazettes.

^Hal I doubt it as it was written in pencil on the back of it twice.

Perhaps it was a mistake...

However the mirror wound up here.

It's no big deal, I just had not heard of that place so I wondered where it was.
