The Phaelan Hotel c.1881
Picture Compiled by Robert Holdgreve, President of Delphos Historical Society
Mayor Gallmeier suggested I call the Lehmann Furnature Store. It is housed in one of the old hotels - the former Phaelan Hotel, as it turns out. My thought is that perhaps the writer was just referring generally to "the" hotel in Delphos. Folks could get away with just providing the postoffice with a name and a city. The card was summarily delivered as requested. It was not returned 3 months later shredded and sealed in a plastic snack sized baggie with vague threats pencilled on the steamed envelope flap. This, of course, was back in the time of 2 digit telephone numbers, no Social Security numbers and certainly no zip codes.
Perhaps the postcard was delivered in this mail carriage..
The carriage is on display at the Delphos Postal History Museum.

The card is addressed to Annie E. Cole on Johnson Street and reads:
Dec - 18 -1913 - Piedmont, Fla
Dear Friend - We have been in Fla since Nov. 19 - Enjoying the lovely mild weather and eating all the oranges and grapefruit we can. The weather is so warm that ladies still go out in the streets in the thinnest of summer dresses. No coats. It seems more like Sept. to us. We can't realize Xmas will be here in a few days. Hope you rec'd my card from Jacksonville. Wish you and your sister could spend a winter in Florida - Mr. V.D. sends regards to you both.
Carroll Building. A historical (yawn) building in Apopka.
Apopka is the Indian word for Potato Eating Place. Is too.
Apopka, which is part of the Orlando Metropolitan area is yet another example of a town that originally received electrical power (in 1914) from the local ice company - the Apopka Water, Light and Ice, Incorporated.
The Apopka area is growing and expanding and is pleased to be the site of a new Lowe's, a Home Depot, a Staples and two (2) Chili's Restaurants. I've been near Apopka several times, but have never knowingly been within the city limits.
