[The Foster Hotel]

Description:

A note on the back of this picture identifies it as the Foster House. It was located at 202 NW 6th Street (given in Polk's Directory for 1909 as "202 West Moore", two blocks north of the Crazy Well) and facing 6th Street. It was one block west of the Hexagon House, and within two blocks of other wells.
The style of the building appears to be Queen Anne, spindle-work subtype, with paired gables. The number "2231" is written on the photograph.
A railroad ran a main trunk line on the other side of the hotel's block. It was built before 1904 but further history of this early hotel is not known at this time [2008].
Another picture (The Foster Hotel: Second Photograph, which please see) supplies a few more details.
