The Hamilton House (built 1892) was the second structure of that name to occupy the site. (The first building with that name was erected by Hamilton Murray in 1855.) In 1909 the hotel was sold to one Joseph E. Danio, who upgraded the property and renamed it the Danio Hotel. This image may date to 1920 or 1921, the year when Mr. Danio sold the hotel at auction. The entire block on which the hotel stood was razed in 1965 as part of urban renewal.
