I decided to get rid of all the “tablescapes” and family photos and random stuff on every table in the house so first I cleared off the dining room table…

Which, though a mess, did reveal a few hidden gems…

a matchbook from Hayes INC. Restaurant and Barbecue, North Avenue at Harlem, River Grove, Illinois…”We are open 7000 hours a year to serve you”

and this matchbook for the Edgewater Beach Hotel.  This hotel was an elegant 1920’s landmark of my childhood…when driving south from the North Shore to the city (Chicago) you spotted the Edgewater Beach Hotel just as you arced onto Lake Shore Drive…it had a red light in the cupola at the top…torn down maybe about 1969…
