Hotel Utica, 1914

Hotel Utica, 1914

This photograph of the Hotel Utica was taken two years after the hotel's completion in 1912 (based on the release date of The Fortune Hunter, the film promoted on the Majestic Theater marquee down the block). The Majestic occupied the structure of the Utica Opera House, where freethought orator Robert Green Ingersoll lectured on five occasions between 1887 and 1894.
