The Old Imperial Hotel

This place holds a big place in my memory. My father's used car lot was immediately behind the hotel on Forrest Avenue. He and my brothers and I salvaged the steam pipes from the room that became the Domino Lounge in the early 50s and built our carport with it, and I had a job there as a cashier in the Coffee Shop on the first floor during the summer after graduation.
